The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open
Original version (English) with French subtitles
(fiction, 2018, 105 minutes)
Written and directed by Kathleen Hepburn and Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers

When Áila encounters a young Indigenous woman, barefoot and crying in the rain on the side of a busy street, she soon discovers that this young woman, Rosie, has just escaped a violent assault at the hands of her boyfriend. Áila decides to bring Rosie home with her and over the course of the evening, the two navigate the aftermath of this traumatic event. 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.

World Premiere at Berlinale 2019 et north-american premiere at TIFF 2019.
