WHEN THEY AWAKE
DIRECTOR P.J. MARCELLINO | HERMON FARAHI
DOCUMENTARY • 92 MINUTES • CANADA
You won’t see the revolution – you’ll hear it.
It is this generation of musicians, this moment in time, and this astonishing music, that we witness in When They Awake!
Working in every genre, from Hip Hop to Rock to Electro Pop to EDM to Country and beyond, an empowered, outspoken, woke generation of musicians is fiercely channeling the darkness of the colonial past, and the resilience of their ancestors, into a stirring, hopeful vision of the future.
Featuring artists like Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq, Anishinaabe EDM outfit A Tribe Called Red, Cree electro-pop sensation IskWé, and just about every other act you can name, When They Awake is a kaleidoscope of voices and a remarkable snapshot of this burgeoning scene.
