Hank Williams First Nation

Sat 6:00 PM, Mon 12:00 PM

A remote Cree community takes on a certain charge when one of its own sets out on an ambitious (and somewhat loopy) adventure. 75 year-old Martin Fox decides abruptly one morning that before he dies he must visit the grave of his long time hero Hank Williams.

Martin sets out for Tennessee on a Greyhound, accompanied by a 17 year-old nephew sent along as a guide. As the two travelers gain human-interest-story-of-the-week status in the U.S. press, the news trickling back home provides a unifying spark to the little community, and the variety of colorful characters that make it their home. Shot on the Woodland Cree First Nation in the Peace River Country of Northern Alberta, this is an endearing look at a good-hearted and good-humored people and the unique charms and challenges that surround them.
