Tuesday Wonder: Edge of the Knife (SGaawaay K'uuna


Set in the 19th century on the island of Haida Gwaii on British Columbia’s north Pacific coast, Edge of the Knife is the legendary Indigenous tale of Adiits’ii, who retreats alone into the forest after a tragic accident at sea takes the life of his beloved nephew.
Wracked with grief and hounded by spirits, he slowly transforms himself into the Wildman, or Gaagiixiit. Will he ever be forgiven? Can he forgive himself? Can he ever re-enter his community?

A daring, groundbreaking film made entirely in two dialects of a nearly extinct Haida language (note: 2019 is UNESCO’s the Year of Indigenous Languages), Edge of the Knife is a startling, absorbing drama; from the producers of The Fast Runner and Searchers.

This special screening is happening in conjunction with the workshop Endangered languages and ecosystems: Threats and opportunities organised by the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies at the University of Leeds.

Our screening of Edge of the Knife will be introduced by introduced by Tweed, Director and curator of Native Spirit Festival.
