THE BODY REMEMBERS WHEN THE WORLD BROKE OPEN
In Post-Production - Release September 2018
Inspired by a very real and transformative moment in the co-director Elle-Máijá Tailfeather's life, The Body Remembers When The World Broke Open weaves an intricately complex, while at the same time very simple, story of a chance encounter between two Indigenous women with drastically different lived experience, navigating the aftermath of domestic abuse. Our intention with this film is to incite discourse around violence against women, racism, and social inequality. It will question our complacency in the face of such violence and the complications of how we react in its presence. Ultimately, the story draws from and brings attention to the strength and resilience of Indigenous women and girls.
co-written & co-directed by ELLE-MÁIJÁ TAILFEATHERS & KATHLEEN HEPBURN
