A deeply moving visual poem about a young man's trip into the city after leaving his First Nations reserve, and the thread that permanently ties us to where we are from.
Jimmy, a young man leaving his First Nations reserve to go into the city, embarks on an urban road filled with roaming lost and dark souls. Yet his break with the ties of the past, we learn, will never be complete. A gorgeously crafted poem, Michelle Latimer's film brings the audience on an intimate path of self-discovery.
Choke fearlessly expresses the psychological isolation of youth in search of assimilation and identity, and is a perfect illustration of the possibilities and versatility of the genre.
