Spotlight on our cinema
QUéBEC, Canada | 96 minutes | 2019
Something strange is happening around the Red Crow Mi’gMaq reserve: dead fish start coming back to life, followed shortly by dead humans. All too soon, the Indigenous residents of Red Crow — remarkably immune to the hideous plague — find their community invaded by white refugees, whose survival they must ensure . . . Jeff Barnaby (Rhymes for Young Ghouls) surely had one of the year’s best pitches with this brilliantly twisted storyline. His dark sophomore feature, harrowing and unsettling, gives the zombie movie a very of-the-moment twist, nodding to the genre’s political roots while placing it firmly within the burgeoning militancy of the present day.Q&A with the cast and crew on October 17th"Like the best of zombie cinema, Blood Quantum is deeply steeped in sociopolitical conversations. There’s a lot of visual interest here, including stunning animated segments that make it feel unlike any other zombie movie I’ve ever seen, even if the fascinating and nuanced Mi’gmaq angle hadn’t already distinguished the film."
