A film by Bretten Hannam
(Canada, 2021, 108 min.)

1 show for this event

A road movie combined with a coming-of-age story set in the spectacular Canadian territories of the Mi’kmaq people. Link is a teenager who is searching for his own identity and discovering his own desires. After running away from his abusive father, he and his younger brother embark on a journey to find their birth mother. Meeting Pasmay, a Native American who honors the rituals of his secular culture, connects the two brothers with their indigenous heritage. An intense and deep story that delicately and poetically tells us about the physical and emotional journey of individuals discovering their roots and identity.
