Director: Stephen Campanelli Run Time: 101min Genre(s): Drama
Adapted from the much-celebrated novel by the late Ojibway writer Richard Wagamese, INDIAN HORSE is a powerful drama that delves deep into the shameful history of Canada’s Residential Schools. The young protagonist of Wagamese’s saga – brought to the screen by a team that includes director Stephen Campanelli, screenwriter Dennis Foon and executive producer Clint Eastwood — Saul comes to know the worst of the system’s abuses after a series of family tragedies leave him in the care of authorities in Manitoba of the late 1950s. When one of the priests – played by Michiel Huisman of GAME OF THRONES – recognizes Saul’s hockey talents, a potential pathway opens up before the youngster but like so many survivors of the schools, he remains haunted by the traumas of the past.
