DC Premiere/ Post-screening Q&A with director and Award-winning cast member Q’orianka Kilcher.
The warm-hearted tale of a fractured family brought together by tragedy: a clan in flux in a story that is at once about the constancy and the fragility of love, as well as the importance of family. Siblings linked by their past but separated by their present are left dealing with each other both in the confines of a hospital and back home on the reservation.
Director’s Statement: I believe this story to be a universal family story, no matter which country or ethnicity it takes place in. Far too often, we are so caught up in the business of our life that we don’t realize we are missing out on the most important thing we share: the bond of family, even if things are not always easy. Too often, realization of what matters comes too late. A mother or a father passes away, and a person finds that they have missed out entirely on something they always had.
The movie has played in many competitive festivals during 2012 and has won 11 Jury and Audience Choice Awards for Best Feature Film.
Cast: Chaske Spencer, Gil Birmingham, Q’orianka Kilcher, Tyler Christopher, Tantoo Cardinal and Rodney A. Grant.
