The Toronto International Film Festival kicks off next week and CBC Indigenous has a list of five films to catch at this year’s event.
Director: Jeff Barnaby
Jeff Barnaby returns to the big screen with his follow up to Rhymes for Young Ghouls. Blood Quantum is a zombie thriller that offers a political critique on colonial systems used to determine Indigenous status.
In the film, people in an isolated Mi’kmaw community discover they are the only humans immune to a zombie plague. The community must decide if they should offer refuge to outsiders escaping the virus at the risk of their own safety.
