Episode 46: Wildhood W/Bretten Hannam
Bretten Hannam has been working on Wildhood, in one way or another, for the past decade, pausing to make multiple short films and their debut feature, North Mountain (2015), an experience that took years itself to recover from. Wildhood is the story of a Two-Spirit Mi'kmaq teen who sets off to find the mother he thought was dead, a gorgeously rendered, gentle journey of self-discovery. In 2020 it became the first feature film to shoot in Nova Scotia in a post-COVID world. Brett stopped in on their way to the film's world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival to chat challenges, considerations of community, and opening FIN tonight.
