200748 mins

Since 1984, every second summer, choirs from around the world converge on the edge of British Columbia’s coastal wilderness to celebrate the splendor of their music and their love of singing. The film, directed by Gemini Award winning Tony Papa, interweaves the heart of the choral experience with explosive performance from international choirs and musicians. KATHAUMIXW (pronounced Ka-thou-mew) is a local Coast Salish First Nations word meaning: “a gathering of different peoples.” And so it is.
