"RAPTUROUS. STUNNING. AT TIMES, IT FEELS LIKE RICHLY WOVEN GHOST STORY."

— HYPERALLERGIC

Hopinka’s poetic debut feature, Malni (pronounced moth-nee), follows Sweetwater Sahme and Jordan Mercier as they wander through their surrounding nature in the Pacific Northwest, contemplating their contrasting viewpoints on the afterlife, rebirth, and the place in-between. Spoken mostly in the Chinuk Wawa language, their stories take a departure from the Chinookan people’s circular origin-of-death myth, probing questions about humanity’s place both on earth and in other worlds.
