6:00: The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open, Hipp Cinema, Various Days times, Downtown. The newest film from Kathleen Hepburn (Never Steady, Never Still) and Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers', is a slow burn that packs a powerful emotional punch. It is the type of film where one wants to hug the protagonist tightly until they wise up to the reality of their situation. All the while knowing, however, that one's pleas for change will fall on deaf ears.  As the women bond over their indigenous roots, Hepburn and Tailfeathers' subtly uses their class divide to hit home larger points. Full of melancholy The Body Remembers When the World Broke Open is not an easy film to watch, but it is a necessary one. (105 minutes)
