July 22: Rhymes for Young Ghouls from 2-4pm. At 15, Aila is the weed princess of Red Crow. Hustling with her uncle Burner, she sells enough dope to pay Popper her “truancy tax”, keeping her out of St.Ds. But when Aila’s drug money is stolen and her father Joseph returns from prison, the precarious balance of Aila’s world is destroyed. Her only options are to run or fight… and Mi’gMaq don’t run.
July 29: Stryker form 2-4pm. Stryker is a 2004 film by Noam Gonick about gang violence in Winnipeg’s North End.
