Interview with Metis Writer and Director of Parallel Minds

Benjamin Ross Hayden has been making a name for himself since his debut film The Northlander.

I love a good Sci-Fi movie especially when it blends truth and fiction. I got to chat with Metis writer/ director Benjamin Ross Hayden and it seems like he is always pushing the boundaries when it comes to his writing. The trailer has a very Matrix vibe mixed with the true feelings of Black Mirror and how we are so close to blending AI and humans. Check out the trailer!

Hayden's second feature film is an Indigenous sci-fi thriller, was shot in Western Canada last year starring Greg Bryk from CBC's Frontier and award-winning Calgary Cree actress Michelle Thrush from Blackstone on Netflix and APTN. The film is supported by Telefilm Canada and will be released in North American theatres - in 15 cities and counting - and at 16 festivals internationally this year and will broadcast primetime on APTN in December.
