Spinning Reels presents . . .
Through Black Spruce
Monday, April 22nd, 2019 | 7:00 p.m. at the Norwood Theatre
Don McKellar and his marquee cast, featuring Graham Greene and Tantoo Cardinal, explore the agony of Canada’s missing and murdered Indigenous women through the story of one family, whose chilling loss forces the survivors to venture into uncomfortable worlds.
The disappearance of a young Cree woman named Suzanne Bird triggers events in two worlds: the remote Northern Ontario town she fled years ago, and the big city where she became a successful model. Up north, her uncle Will (Brandon Oakes) clashes with a local drug dealer who’s looking for Suzanne, and believes Will knows her whereabouts. Meanwhile, her fiercely independent twin sister, Annie (Tanaya Beatty), travels to Toronto to retrace her sibling’s footsteps… and finds herself drawn into the seductively glamorous life Suzanne left behind.
Through Black Spruce is an adaptation of Joseph Boyden’s 2008 Giller Prize winning novel and the film won the 2019 Canadian Screen Award for Best Original Score.
