Notes sur Wapawekka


Citation de la réalisatrice [en anglais]

« With [Wapawekka, I was trying to address the tension that lies in the cultural gap from one generation to the next, where the old and new collide. My dad grew up on the land, hunting, trapping, speaking Cree as a first language and I live in Toronto and don't speak much Cree at all. The story is tragic on one hand but I also tried to convey a sense of promise—a beauty in the way that culture evolves. My shooting approach was inspired by neo-realist drama and cinema vérité documentary filmmaking. [...] I headed out with a small crew to my family's cabin and spent the week with my family. [...] The lead is my cousin Josh, a hip hop artist based in Saskatoon and the dad character is played by my own dad. »

Citation sur Wapawekka [en anglais]

« Wapawekka [...] follows a Native hip-hopper on a father-son fishing and hunting trip. Superbly filmed by director Danis Goulet and starring members of her own family, the story maintains a quiet pace, allowing us to feel the lack of communication between the dad and his uninterested teenage son. Yet it takes a surprising, enigmatic turn, showing that the bond between the two is much stronger than thought. A beautiful film. »
