A long healing process is chronicled in this documentary that captures the spirit of a people coming to grips with a traumatic history. Innu Nikamu is the name of a major First Nations music festival held each year in Maliotenam, Quebec. For his first documentary, the Innu director sets out to capture the essence of an event that builds bridges, drawing on ancestral traditions to help restore a North Shore community’s sense of who they are. A cinematic legacy for a proud people reclaiming their past.The first screening will be presented with french subtitles (screening 4), the second with english subtitles (screening 165)
