No school Friday
Ages 10- up including parents
The Grizzlies is an inspiring, and piercing look, into the lives of youth in Kugluktuk, a Nunavut community with one of the highest teen suicide rates in the world. Even though we get introduced to Kugluktuk through the eyes of settler teacher Russ Sheppard, the story is told in a way that centres Inuit youth as the heroes to their own stories. By centering Inuit youth, the film stays away from the stereotypical and tiresome white saviour tropes that often plague films about people of colour.
