Spring 2019: Sgaawaay K'uuna (Edge of the Knife)


Originally screened: March 13, 2019

Directors: Gwaii Edenshaw, Helen Haig-Brown
Country: Canada
Runtime: 100 minutes

After a tragic accident, Adiits'ii (Tyler York) finds himself transformed by guilt, repelled from the centre of his community into isolation. Drawing on the Haida legend of the Gaagiixiid, or “Wildman," this film — the first ever made in the Haida language — works with two branching purposes. With language, and with people, it asks how to save what seems lost.
