Indian Horse

Drama, 2017, Canada, 101 min, 14A
In English and Ojibway, with some subtitles

Director: Stephen Campanelli

They told me to tell my story...
This award-winning film depicts the life of Canadian First Nations boy, Saul Indian Horse, as he survives residential school and life amongst the racism of the 1970s. A talented hockey player, Saul must find his own path as he battles stereotypes and alcoholism. Based on the award-winning novel of the same name by Richard Wagamese. 94% from viewers on Rotten Tomatoes.

Although the film has won many People's Choice awards at film festivals across the country, it has also been criticized by some for having a predominantly Caucasian production crew when Indigenous filmmakers are looking for ways to make their films. Before he died last year, Richard Wagamese gave his blessing to Stephen Campanelli and the producers because "he wanted a film that was as commercial as possible – that would reach as many people as possible.” The sad fact is that at this point, Indigenous filmmakers don't attract investors as easily as their white counterparts do. Many are hoping that this film will help to bridge that divide and bring Indigenous stories to more people. In that way, there will be a greater appetite for them and for Indigenous people who can become storytellers in any genre.
