Film Screening: “Edge of the Knife”
April 4 @ 2:00 pm$8 – $12
Winner of 17 awards, the first feature film made entirely in Haida. Inspired by traditional legend, the story starts as two large families gather for their annual fishing retreat on Haida Gwaii. A nobleman accidentally causes the death of his best friend’s son and retreats to the wilderness, tormented by what he has done. While he spirals into insanity, becoming Gaagiixid (a supernatural being crazed by hunger), his tribe tries to reclaim him. With amazing visuals, this film is beautifully visual and culturally and historically memorable.
Director Gwaai Edenshaw will be in attendance.
