Tia and Piujuq

The Roxy Theater, in partnership with Nl?ay Indigenous Film Festival, is proud to present Indigenous Cinema, a weekly series in November highlighting indigenous stories in honor of National Native American Heritage Month. 

Throughout the month we will be hosting a program of short films from Art House Convergence and Sundance Institute's Indigenous Program alongside our feature film program. 1-2 short films will shown prior to each feature film, and a panel discussion will follow all screenings.

Sponsored by Humanities Montana.

Tia, a 10 year-old Syrian refugee living in Montreal, finds a magic portal and travels to the Arctic.  There, she befriends an Inuk girl with whom she immerses herself into a world of Inuit myth and magic.

Accompanied by the short film Fainting Spells (10 minutes), Sky Hopinka (Ho-Chunk/Pechanga Band of LuiseƱo).
