Performance Notes

× Dir. Marie Clements | NWT/BC |100 MIN | FICTION

When captured by the Taliban, a Gwich’in soldier (Asivak Koostachin) must confront tormenting memories he believed he’d left behind in the Canadian north. In turn, when he strikes up an alliance with a Pashtun family, he discovers an affinity with these ethnic Afghans beyond their shared bid for survival. Shifting between striking arctic and arid landscapes, and tapping into a universal need for belonging, Marie Clements delivers an enthralling thriller that’s as poignant as it is pulse-quickening.

In English, Gwich'in, Pashto, Inuvialuktun w/ subtitles.

Recommended 13+ - This film contains sexual expletives and mild violence.
