Renowned award-winning playwright Marie Clements’ Red Snow is a visually stunning all-powerful film that emphasizes the interconnectedness of humanity by exploring two cultures on opposite sides of the world.
Filmed on location in Canada’s Northwest Territories (Yellowknife and Dettah) and the desert interior region of British Columbia (the Ashcroft Band Lands, Cache Creek and Kamloops), RED SNOW is the powerful story of Dylan, a Gwich’in soldier from the Canadian Arctic, who is caught in an ambush in Panjwayi, Afghanistan. His capture and interrogation by a Taliban Commander release a cache of memories connected to the love and death of his Inuit cousin, Asana, and binds him closer to a Pashtun family as they escape across treacherous landscapes and through a blizzard that becomes their key to survival.
The film’s incredible roster of talent includes Tantoo Cardinal, Asivak Koostachin, Mozhdah Jamalzadah, Samuel Marty, Miika Bryce Whiskeyjack, Ishaan Vasdev, Shafin Karim and Kane Mahon.
Many distinguishing factors make Red Snow unlike anything we’ve seen before, and we’re pretty certain it’s the only piece of art that jumps between Gwichi’in, Inuvialuktun, Pashto and English. Mesmerizing and profound, we want to send you to Red Snow.
