Storyline

A young priest is sent by his bishop deep into the seacoast wilds of British Columbia to a parish of Kwakiutl Native Americans called Kingcome. The Tsawataineuk live in an inlet village and take their sustenance from the sea and from the forest. The bishop has not told him this, but the priest has only two years left to live. Among these vanishing Indians, Mark Brian learns enough of the meaning of life not to fear death. Through is faith and humanity, he becomes part of the village, of the Indians themselves, and witness to their rituals and beliefs and the gradual destruction of a culture. Then, on a cold winter evening, when he hears the owl in the forest call his name, he understands what is going to happen. Written by Rosa

This is one of those films that stays with you for many years. I saw it about 20 years ago and remember the powerful effect of this story of a minister who is sent to a west coast native Canadian village. He learns that he has much to learn from his hosts. Quiet, touching and inspirational tale.
