Hybrid feature film
Wilfred Buck centres on a Cree elder who’s been called the Indiana Jones of Indigenous star knowledge. Weaving together his harrowing past and his present life with sky stories, we move between the gutter and the stars to explore colonization’s impact on Indigenous ways of knowing.
