CANADA | 90 minutes | 2017

At the crossroads of genres, a complex cinematic portrait that sets out to give a voice to the people the system forgot. For his first feature, Vancouver director Wayne Wapeemukwa reiterates and expands on the theme of his 2014 short. Shot during the frenzy of the 2010 winter Olympics, Luk’Luk’l follows five characters living on the fringes of society. A work that straddles naturalistic documentary and in-your-face fiction, the official story and the hidden reality.
