Monday Cinema: Run Woman Run

November 28 4:00 to 5:45 pm

The story of Beck, a single mom who learns how to reclaim her dreams, family and to honour her life, all thanks to an unlikely coach.

Beck (Dakota Ray Hebert) lives on the Six Nations reserve in Ontario. After falling into a diabetic coma she is visited by the spirit of Indigenous running legend Tom Longboat (Asivak Koostachin), who helps her to change her lifestyle and becomes her wise-cracking new life coach and personal trainer. Equal parts funny and touching, this moving film perfectly captures grief, family, and triumph as Beck faces her mother’s death, allowing her to reconnect with her heritage.

Run Woman Run took home top prize at the 2021 American Indian Film Festival, as well as the Audience Choice Award at the 2021 ImagineNative Festival.

“[Run Woman Run] succeeds on the strength of [Dakota Ray Hebert]... It’s a story that goes the distance.” - Chris Knight, National Post
