Opening Gala: Falls Around Her

  • Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema 506 Bloor Street West Toronto, ON, M5S 1Y3 Canada (map)

Legendary singer, Mary Birchbark (Tantoo Cardinal), abandons a life of fame and fortune to follow the instinctual pull that calls her home to her First Nation. Desiring to reconnect with land and her community, she returns to the beautiful woods of her reserve to seek solitude in an isolated cabin. But as the slow change of seasons marks her thirst for transformation, she begins to have the unsettling feeling that she is being watched and quickly finds that doors to the past are not so easily shut

imagineNATIVE is pleased to present Falls Around Her as this year’s Opening Night selection. Filled with drama and humour, this film also commemorates the first starring role in a feature-length movie for the legendary Tantoo Cardinal.
