Falls Around Her

Opening Night Film | Premiere

Legendary singer, Mary Birchbark (Tantoo Cardinal), abandons a life of fame and fortune to follow the instinctual pull that calls her home to her First Nation. Desiring to reconnect with land and her community, she returns to the beautiful woods of her reserve to seek solitude in an isolated cabin. But as the slow change of seasons marks her thirst for transformation, she begins to have the unsettling feeling that she is being watched and quickly finds that doors to the past are not so easily shut

Winda Film Festival are pleased to present Falls Around Her as this year’s Opening Night selection. Filled with drama and humour, this film also commemorates the first starring role in a feature- length movie for the legendary Tantoo Cardinal, whose remarkable performance is shared with
a fantastic supporting cast including Tina Keeper, Gail Maurice and Johnny Issaluk.
