Circling the origin of the death myth from the Chinookan people, Małni follows Sweetwater Sahme and Jordan Mercier as they wander through their surrounding nature, the spirit world, and something much deeper inside. Taking separate paths, the two contemplate their afterlife, rebirth, and death.
Guided by Indigenous philosophy, Sky Hopinka’s metaphysical documentary poetically transforms the verdant landscape of the Pacific Northwest into an enigmatic conduit to other spiritual realms. The simple act of wandering ignites profound questions about the mystery of death and the cycle of life.
