CRFF Aitamaako’Tamisskapi Natosi: Before the Sun

A thrilling portrait of a young Siksika woman and the deep bonds between her father and family in the golden plains of Blackfoot Territory as she prepares for one of the most dangerous horse races in the world… on bareback.

A sport for the truly brave, Logan Red Crow is an Indian Relay rider who vaults from horse to horse in short, exhilarating races. She is a champion in the making -besides her skill and sheer grit, Logan has a loving family, an elite group of horses, and a home on her ancestral lands. Those are invaluable, but this rider will need more for victory.

With the dual pleasures of serenity and suspense: lyrical immersion in rural life alternates with thrilling race footage. As she pushes toward her goal, the connections between animal and human, family and community, ancestral tradition and contemporary life are profound and lasting.

Directed by Banchi Hanuse, Nuxalk, born and raised in Bella Coola, Nuxalkulmc. She is a host with the all-Indigenous music station CUZIN Radio and the co-founder and station manager of Nuxalk Radio whose mission is to keep the Nuxalk language alive, assert Nuxalk Nationhood and promote the stewardship and protection of Nuxalk homelands. She has directed the short film “Uulx” (2015) and short docs “Cry Rock” (2010) and “Nuxalk Radio” (2020).” “Aitamaako’tamisskapi Natosi: Before the Sun” (2022) is her first feature length documentary.
