maɬni – towards the ocean, towards the shore

The feature film debut of prolific Ho-Chunk filmmaker Sky Hopinka, maɬni – towards the ocean, towards the shore extends the promise of his meticulously crafted, short form experimental documentaries, while at the same time pushing towards new ideas, expressions and forms. A bifurcated portrait of the filmmaker’s two friends—Sweetwater Sahme and Jordan Mercier—the film weaves together their individual subjectivities while also purposefully never fully bringing them together.
