Monkey Beach is a supernatural mystery. Layering tragedy, humor and redemption, it tells the story of Lisa, a rebellious young woman who must accept her true heroic nature in order to save Jimmy, her brother who is lost at sea. Monkey Beach is set in the magnificent forests and waterways of the Pacific Northwest and the Haisla village of Kitamaat. Haisla cultural stories are woven into the contemporary lives of Lisa and her family, along with a cast of otherworldly characters including ghosts and Sasquatches - the 'monkeys' of Monkey Beach.
There is no doubt for some that we (Indigenous) still have connections with our ancestors, but for others it will take a vision of sorts to make it easier to understand.
I feel that this movie was created with the intention to beckon our spirits into remembering how to listen for the teachings that will help us navigate through two worlds.
My hands go up in gratitude for all who made it possible - I am so proud of the good work you've done for many.
Thank you Loretta Todd for generously providing my family & many dear ones the opportunity to witness this beautiful creation \('o')/
