Wapos Bay: Long Goodbyes

Top of page

Based upon the Gemini Award-winning television series, Aboriginal filmmakers Dennis and Melanie Jackson’s exquisite characters come alive with the voices of well known Aboriginal performers such as Gordon Tootoosis (North of 60, Legends of the Fall), Andrea Menard (the Velvet Devil) and Lorne Cardinal (Corner Gas). Wapos Bay is a fascinating and often humorous portrait of a northern Aboriginal community from the perspective of its children. 

In this feature film, Talon and Raven learn that their dad, Alphonse, has taken a job in the big city and their family will have to move away from Wapos Bay.  This news takes Talon on a journey of self-discovery as he sets off to accomplish his bucket list of things he wanted to do with his friends before they leave.  Raven, on the other hand, decides to take matters into her own hands with the clear goal of keeping the family in Wapos Bay.  With their whole world being turned upside down, Talon and Raven must join forces to keep the family together before it’s too late.
