Bright Lights Film Series: ‘maɬni: towards the ocean, towards the shore’
October 20 @ 12:00 pm - October 21 @ 7:00 pm
This film follows Sweetwater Sahme and Jordan Mercier’s wanderings through each of their worlds as they contemplate the afterlife, rebirth, and the place in-between. Spoken mostly in chinuk wawa, their stories are departures from the Chinookan origin of death myth, with its distant beginning and circular shape. Discussion with writer and director Sky Hopinka and a second guest to follow.
Tickets are FREE and will be available starting at NOON on Wednesday and will be available for viewing until Thursday at 7:00 PM EST. Register for screening at ArtsEmerson. Link to participate in Zoom Webinar discussion on Thursday at 7:00 PM EST HERE.
