  • Survival Prayer

    2013. USA/Canada. Directed by Benjamin Greené. Washington-based filmmaker Greené’s debut feature is a hypnotic cinematic portrait of a people out of time. Captured with stillness and restrained poeticism, Survival Prayer introduces audiences to the residents of Haida Gwaii, a remote archipelago off the northwest coast of Canada, who live simple lives as contemporary hunter-gatherers, relying on age-old practices as they reject modernity and the slow erosion of their culture. Beautifully shot by Greené and featuring a shimmering, evocative score by Michael Beharie, Survival Prayer won a Special Jury Prize at the Sarasota Film Festival. 70 min.
