Teen girls are fighting against an alien invasion in the first feature movie to ever be filmed in Pangnirtung, Nunavut.

Writer and director Nyla Innuksuk and a film crew of 50 people have descended on the Baffin Island community to begin filming Slash Back this week.

“I loved watching movies like E.T. and I grew up with horror movies,” said Innuksuk. “So I had this idea about making a horror sci-fi movie that’s [also] an adventure movie with a bunch of girls.”
