Following in the footsteps of trailblazers like Buffy Sainte-Marie and Robbie Robertson, Indigenous musicians across North America are carving paths into mainstream consciousness, reclaiming their rightful place in contemporary culture, and using music as a gateway for dialogue and reconciliation. 

With intimate access to all the key players, from Tanya Tagaq to A Tribe Called Red and everyone in between, WHEN THEY AWAKE is a music revolution right before your eyes.

About the Director (in attendance for Q & A): 
PJ MARCELLINO is a Toronto-based producer/director with Longyearbyen Media. He was previously a photo-reporter, journalist, author, and editor, and later a political advisor with international agencies, before reinventing himself as a filmmaker, bringing onto the screen a sense of urgency and empathy developed through working on hard-hitting socio-political issues such as migration, human security, and peace-building. He studied Documentary Filmmaking at Toronto's Documentary Film Institute at Seneca College.

In partnership with Indigenous Visual Culture at OCAD U, CULTURE SHIFTS is a documentary series at OCAD that presents documentary media as a catalyst for critical discussions and community action for social change. The series his supported by Art and Social Change, the Delaney Chair in Indigenous Visual Culture, the Faculty of Art and the Integrated Media Program.
