Wildhood (Mi'kmaq Language Version)

Please note this screening is in the Mi'kmaq language presented without English subtitles.

The Festival is pleased to present this version of Wildhood, our Opening Night Gala, in Mi’kmaq language. When Link (Phillip Lewitski) discovers that his Mi'kmaw mother is still alive, he runs away from an abusive father with his younger brother Travis (Avery Winters-Anthony) in a desperate gamble to start a new life. Joined by Pasmay (Joshua Odjick), a pow wow dancer drawn to Link’s story, they embark on a Two-Spirit odyssey, reconnecting with the culture and territory of Mi'kma'ki/Nova Scotia while searching for Link’s mother, Sarah (Savonna Spracklin).

Available on FIN Stream from September 16th at 10:00am until September 23rd at 11:59 PM.
