Presented with support from Susan and Michael Landauer

This film follows Sweetwater Sahme and Jordan Mercier’s wanderings through each of their worlds as they wonder through and contemplate the afterlife, rebirth, and the place in-between. Spoken mostly in Chinuk Wawa, their stories are departures from the Chinookan origin of death myth, with its distant beginning and circular shape.

Due to an agreement with the filmmaker, małni—towards the ocean, towards the shore will only be available to audience members in Michigan.
