An intimate journey of identity, belonging, and "where do we go from here?"
Swaney emerging halfway through the film to acknowledge the weight of Kendra's commitment, and examining her own investments and possible projections was both necessary and appropriate to the authenticity of Indigenous people telling Indigenous stories. I can't fathom the difficulty of untangling the complexities, so I'm appreciative to Swaney for taking it on and sharing it with us.
A brilliant contribution to sharing the diverse experiences of each Indigenous person in relation to identity, belonging, colonial violence, intergenerational trauma, and the complicated idea of "homecoming."
one of my favourite movies! i guess last night was a chris o'dowd double feature.
on my first watch, i instantly loved how fun it is and of course the feeling of being an outsider and building chosen family made me cry a bunch.
during my most recent watch, i was mesmerized by the editing. it has such an intentional and almost musical rhythm to it.
