In the 1800s, on the remote islands of Haida Gwaii off the west coast of British Columbia, two extended families re-unite at their annual summer fishing camp. Soon conflict between a charismatic young nobleman, Adiits’ii, and his best friend Kwa, tears their interwoven families apart.

Vores mening

Realized in a language which less than 20 people now speak, Edge of the Knife is a singular act of lingual preservation and a mythic story of revenge, family, and the supernatural amidst the breathtaking landscapes of British Columbia’s Haida Gwaii. Presented in collaboration with Canada Now.

Kritikeranmeldelser

A truly immersive nineteenth-century period piece.

Its power stems in large part from its affect of immersive authenticity, from the ravishingly beautiful, unspoiled natural locations to the uniformly excellent cast.

Regardless of how important Edge of the Knife may be, it is a cracking good tale, expertly told and beautifully executed. Organized around a fraternal struggle that is both intimate and elemental, Gwaii Edenshaw and Helen Haig-Brown’s film will remind many of Atanarjuat in its raw narrative power.
