When They Awake!

  •   P.J. Marcellino, Hermon Farahi

This urgent and inspiring portrait follows a remarkable collection of indigenous Canadian musicians during a moment of cultural and political resurgence. Featuring trailblazing singer-songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie, the film shines a spotlight on artists working in every genre from hip hop to rock and beyond. When They Awake! chronicles these rising voices in native music as they celebrate the power of cultural traditions while channeling the pain of the past into a stirring, hopeful vision of the future.
