--> The film will be available for 48 hours starting on Wednesday April 21, 2021, at 12:01 AM. No registration required!
Two Indigenous women from vastly different backgrounds find their worlds colliding on an East Vancouver sidewalk when domestic violence forces one of them, a pregnant teen named Rosie (Violet Nelson), to flee her home.
Àila (Tailfeathers) swiftly offers her shelter, and as their intimate yet challenging encounter develops, the women weave a fragile bond, and must face their own unique struggles with the complexities of motherhood, class, and colonialism.
Q&A with directors Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers and Kathleen Hepburn. Moderated by Howard Adler, Co-Director of the Asinabka Festival.
--> Q&A Goes live April 21.
