Following the death of their mother, Samuel and Emilie, two siblings with developmental disabilities, leave the safe harbor of their lifelong home. They set out for Matchi Manitou, the magical territory in northwestern Quebec where Emilie believes her mother’s soul was delivered. Samuel and Emilie’s is a journey at once geographical and spiritual—one that will test the limits of their resources and their relationship.
Weaving Cree and Anicinabe myths into a contemporary narrative about loss and regeneration, this fourth feature from Quebecois filmmaker Denis Langlois is an iconoclastic, heartfelt road movie that allows space for reality and fable to coalesce and arrive at a greater truth.
This film is also featured in the 2017 Film Festival’s Cinema 360º Film Category.
