Based on the bestselling book by award-winning author Richard Wagamese (1955-2017), a Kamloops resident until his death in March of last year, this film sheds light on the dark history of Canada’s Residential Schools and the indomitable spirit of the Indigenous people. In the late 1950’s Ontario, eight-year-old Saul Indian Horse is torn from his Ojibway (Anishnaabe) family and committed to one of Canada’s notorious Catholic Residential Schools. In this oppressive environment, Saul is denied the freedom to speak his language or embrace his Indigenous heritage while he witnesses horrendous abuse at the hands of the very people entrusted with his care. Despite this, Saul finds salvation in the unlikeliest of places - hockey.
”THE CAMERAWORK IS THE STANDOUT TECHNICAL CONTRIBUTION HERE…CHARTING SAUL’S GROWTH FROM CHILD TO BROKEN YOUNG MAN IN IMAGES THAT RESPECT HIS DIFFICULT JOURNEY WITHOUT TURNING THEM INTO PRETTY PICTURES FOR PRETTINESS’ SAKE.”
- Boyd van Hoeij, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
“THE FILMMAKERS EMPHASIZE THEIR HIGH REGARD FOR WAGAMESE’S WORK IN THE FILM’S FAITHFUL REPLICATION OF THE NOVEL’S PLOT.”
- Brett Pardy, SEVENTH ROW
