Legends sxwexwxiy'am: The Story of Siwash Rock

Réalisé par Annie Fraziér Henry
Canada, 1999 (fiction, 24 minutes, couleurs, anglais)

Description du film [en anglais] :
« 'It is said the proud Siwash Rock resembles a certain young warrior of long, long ago... a brave young chief who pledged his honour to the love of a beautiful young girl from the north.' —Chief Simon Baker. So begins sxwexwxwiy'am: The Story of Siwash Rock, a contemporary dramatization of an ancient Coast Salish myth about the famous Vancouver landmark that symbolizes the most sacred of a man's vows, cleanliness of fatherhood. As Chief Simon Baker narrates in Squamish, the tale unfolds in Vancouver's inner city. We meet Andrew, a young Native man struggling to overcome the disillusionment of his people. Unemployed and faced with the unplanned and difficult pregnancy of his girlfriend Kelsey, Andrew must prove himself worthy of fatherhood by following the traditional path of his ancestors. Legends is a gripping and life-affirming drama, featuring powerful performances by the film's young actors. »
