Sky HOPINKA: maɬni – towards the ocean, towards the shore

📍La Grande Halle, Luma Foundation, Arles

▪️ iDzia installation : the sound, the structure

maɬni is an experimental and poetic documentary that follows two young Native Americans from the Pacific Northwest, Sweetwater Sahme and Jordan Mercier. In front of Sky Hopinka's camera, they share, in English and Chinuk Wawa, their questions about their American lives in relation to their indigenous identity. Contemplative and meditative, the film captures the rhythm of natural elements like water and echoes Chinook myths about the cycles of life and death.
