We are thrilled to be able to share with you Making the Mystics: An Artistic Ceremony Documentary by Kim Senklip Harvey, a Green Thumb Theatre Production in collaboration with Kim Senklip Productions and The Cultch.

MAKING THE MYSTICS is a documentary honoring the transcendent nature of Tsilhqot’in culture explored through Kim Senklip Harvey’s artistic constitution. This feature film weaves through interviews with Interior Salish community members, and select scenes from Senklip Harvey’s first story for young audiences to illuminate the mystical powers of connecting with the land and ourselves. In Harvey’s signature style of fusing humor and hope, we are invited into intimate conversations, community places, and cosmic spaces to honor the feisty fortitude of the Tsilhqot’in Nation. This documentary ignites a fire for he youthful parts of all of our spirits, encouraging us to have the courage to honor the emotional complexities of living a full life.
