When They Awake
Director: P.J. Marcellino/Hermon Farahi
91 minutes

When They Awake is a vibrant celebration of a remarkable generation of Indigenous musicians in North America, at a watershed moment of social, cultural, and political resurgence.

Picking up the story where ‘Rumble’ left it, and with intimate access to many key players – from Nunavut throat-singer Tanya Tagaq to EDM outfit A Tribe Called Red, and from legendary songstress-activist Buffy Sainte-Marie to uncompromising singer-songwriter Iskwe – When They Awake is an empowering sonic engine about a music renaissance happening before our eyes.
