Quote:
"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."
