Indigenous Focus

Redpath- This short documentary tells the story of Tony Chachai, a young Aboriginal man in search of his identity. Moved by the desire to reconnect with his Atikamekw roots, he delivers a touching testimony on the journey that brought him closer to his family and community. On the verge of becoming a father himself, he becomes increasingly aware of the richness of his heritage and celebrates it by dancing in a powwow. Smudge- This short documentary follows three Indigenous women as they practice ancestral forms of worship: drumming, singing and using sweetgrass. These ancient spiritual traditions may at first seem at odds with urban life, but to Native Canadians used to praying in natural settings, the whole world is sacred space.
