The Body Remembers When The World Broke Open

Part of the Stars of the Canadian Cinema Scene! Nominated for six Canadian Screen Awards!

The Body Remembers When The World Broke Open follows in real time the weighted encounter between two Indigenous women who are worlds apart; it’s a brief interaction with a lasting, melancholic impact. Áila tries to find shelter for Rosie, a pregnant woman she finds barefoot on East Vancouver’s rainy streets, cowering from an abusive boyfriend seen in the distance. The filmmakers, Kathleen Hepburn and Elle-Maíjá Tailfeathers, find delicate and insightful ways to grapple with the complicated emotions around motherhood and intergenerational trauma.
