Synopsis


Filmed during the cruel winter months in Winnipeg, Northstarling, follows a day in the life of a woman living on the brink of poverty - the border of a great abyss where her only companions are snow crunched memories and cavity ridden buildings.

A word from Tënk


The city streets are cold. The grim light of winter falls on desolate landscapes marked by poverty. Dilapidated buildings, cramped dépanneurs, passers-by with their heads down. And yet, there’s heat to be found in this film from Trevor Mowchun and Daniel Gerson. Despite the solitude and muscle-stiffening cold, there is still life. Despite the overpowering desire to stop fighting and give up, letting the snow cover us, letting the cold take everything, time carries us to our next move and life finds a way. Friends, clients, a child: something is keeping us in balance and the next day comes, and we are still there to greet it. Another day, another fight.
