Skillfully written and directed by Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers & Kathleen Hepburn, THE BODY REMEMBERS WHEN THE WORLD BROKE OPEN follows two Indigenous women from vastly different backgrounds when their worlds collide as one of them, Rosie, is fleeing a violent domestic attack. What begins as an urgent and terrifying escape, tentatively expands as the women weave a fragile bond in their short time together while navigating the complexities of motherhood and the ongoing legacy of colonialism. The film takes place entirely in real time as a stitched continuous take in order to achieve an experience for the viewer which is urgent, intimate, naturalistic, and highly suspenseful.
