Written and directed by Jeremy Torrie, Path of Souls (2012) takes the viewer into a world of ancestry and oral tradition. As they witness the story, it also which teaches them something about themselves.
Adam Beach is Jon Grace who was in the middle of writing a thesis about traditional knowledge, traveling to sacred indigenous sites across Indian Country when he dies before finishing his quest. He leaves behind a request that his widow Grace (Laura Harris) complete the journey. Jon’s friend Brandon (Corey Sevier) meets up with Grace and decides to join her on the quest.
Grace and Brandon travel to remote locations to interview elders and learn about Native teachings. Throughout the process they struggle with their internal truth and grow from the experience.
This is a beautiful movie that is well presented. However, I thought the ending was weak, which is why I give it two and a half stars out of five.
