SGaawaay K'uuna (Edge of the Knife) (Hist/Adv, Canada, 2018, 100 min, Not Rated)
Directors: Gwaii Edenshaw, Helen Haig-Brown
“Edge of the Knife” gives us a rare opportunity to hear the Haida language. In a 19th-century summer, two large families gather for their annual fishing retreat on the far-removed island of Haida Gwaii. Adiits'ii accidentally causes the death of his best friend Kwa's son and tormented by what he has done, spirals into insanity, becoming Gaagiixid, a supernatural being.
