Episode 6: Horror, Sci-Fi and Fantasy Through An Indigenous lens

Indigenous film is unquestionably having a moment, with more Indigenous filmmakers telling their stories than ever before. In June, we commemorate National Indigenous History Month in Canada. To celebrate, we sat down with Directors Danis Goulet and Nyla Innuksuk. 

Danis Goulet’s dystopian sci-fi Night Raiders premiered at Berlinale 2021, and Nyla Innuksuk’s coming-of-age alien invasion film Slash/Back premiered to critical acclaim at SXSW and landed in theatres and VOD on June 24.

On this episode of Wider Lens, Danis and Nyla speak with our host Annie Bradley about how genre film enables Indigenous filmmakers to imagine a future in which their community not only survives, but thrives.
