The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open
Wed Nov 27: 7.45pm
Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers & Kathleen Hepburn
Skillfully written and directed by Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers & Kathleen Hepburn, The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open follows two Indigenous women from vastly different backgrounds when their worlds collide as one of them, Rosie (Violet Nelson), is fleeing a violent domestic attack. What begins as an urgent and terrifying escape, tentatively expands as the women weave a fragile bond in their short time together while navigating the complexities of motherhood and the ongoing legacy of colonialism. The film takes place entirely in real time as a stitched continuous take in order to achieve an experience for the viewer which is urgent, intimate, naturalistic, and highly suspenseful.
