Zoe Hopkins · Canada · 2017 · 90 mins · NR
When a prominent Kitasoo/Xai’Xais activist (Evan Adams) passes away, his 14-year-old niece Ella (Ta’Kaiya Blaney) makes it her mission to take his ashes home to Klemtu and stand in his place at a community gathering against a proposed pipeline that would bring oil tankers through their beloved homeland waters. Ella embarks on the kayak journey through the Inside Passage along the beautiful shores of the Great Bear Rainforest. Along for the journey are her aunt, cousin, and cranky uncle (Lorne Cardinal). Zoe Hopkins’s first feature film is a delightful family adventure that speaks to our heart and minds about the importance of protecting our lands for the generations to come.
From Tla’Amin to Klemtu, BC, this family navigates their blend of cultures and desires, while their spirits honour the coast as a place for each of us to call home and protect.
