The Canadian Film Forum continues on October 22 with a screening of The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open.

Filmmakers Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers and Kathleen Hepburn will be joined by Cinema Studies alum Radheyan Simonpillai for a post-screening Q&A.

Two Indigenous women from vastly different backgrounds find their worlds colliding as one of them, Rosie, is fleeing a violent domestic attack. What begins as an urgent and terrifying escape, tentatively expands as the women weave a fragile bond in their short time together while navigating the complexities of motherhood and the ongoing legacy of colonialism. 

Online registration required.
