The Last Walk

Synopsis: 

The Last Walk is a collection of three works of short fiction stitched together to tell stories that highlight the common experiences Indigenous People have undertaken in each filmmaker’s specific home region. 

 

The stories take place in these select unforgiving arctic regions of the circumpolar north, where indigenous communities work to maintain a strong cultural connection to the land and animals. 

 

This project is a storytelling initiative that tries to highlight the struggle indigenous peoples of the circumpolar North face - walking in two worlds, and highlight the importance and healing power our traditional ways of life. 

 

The films follow two sisters for whom past events have torn their close relationship apart. Many years after being separated through tragic events, they journey to find answers as a mysterious being influences their path.
