Program 12 – Dark Matter

Time travellers and celestial voyagers beware! We are going on a journey to the dark side of Indigenous cinema, with a collection of shorts exploring new dimensions in Native noir. From traditional ritual sacrifice to the haunting anxieties elicited by other life forms lurking in the shadows, the films in this program reveal the struggle for survival. Take care as you traverse this forest of film, lest you get bit by the horror genre bug! Availability:
