A dystopian future tale rooted in Canada’s colonial and genocidal past. Danis Goulet uses genre to frame and explore the history of both residential schools and Indigenous resistance.
Elle-Maija Tailfeathers is always so watchable. Newcomer Brooklyn Latexier-Hart holds her own. Violet Nelson is a delight and has all the best lines - also loved that Goulet highlighted a very different style of leadership through her character. And cool to see a Maori character - Goulet’s homage to global Indigenous solidarity and support networks.
Plus, I cheered to see a cameo from Danis’ dad & first ever Indigenous SK cabinet minister, Keith Goulet!
