Screenings:

RHYMES FOR YOUNG GHOULS (2013)
Set against the backdrop of the residential schools tragedy — when thousands of Aboriginal children were separated from their families, culture, and language — Mi'gmaq director Jeff Barnaby's much-anticipated debut feature resembles an S.E. Hinton novel reimagined as a surreal, righteously furious thriller. At the tender age of 15, Aila (Kawennahere Devery Jacobs) has taken over the drug business of her father Joseph (Glen Gould) while he serves a stint in prison. Joseph's return signals an abrupt end to Aila's reign as the reservation's drug queen; it also piques the interest of Popper (Mark Antony Krupa), the reserve's corrupt and sadistic Indian agent. The bloody tragedy that unfolds becomes an angry and poetic howl for lost lives, lost opportunities and lost loved ones — a fever dream whose terrifying fictions are grounded in even more terrible fact.

WAKENING (2013)
In the near future, the environment has been destroyed and society suffocates under a brutal military occupation. A lone Cree wanderer searches an urban war zone to find the ancient and dangerous Weetigo to help fight against the occupiers.
