A poetic, experimental debut feature circling the origin of the death myth from the Chinookan people in the Pacific Northwest, MALNI (pronounced moth-nee) – TOWARDS THE OCEAN, TOWARDS THE SHORE follows two people as they wander through their surroundings — the spirit world and something much deeper. At its center are Sweetwater Sahme and Jordan Mercier, who take separate paths contemplating the afterlife, rebirth and death. Probing questions about humanity's place on earth and other worlds, Sky Hopkina's film will have audiences thinking (and dreaming) about it long after it ends. Official Selection, 2020 Sundance, True/False, Black Star and imagineNATIVE film festivals.
