Film Screening: Rhymes for Young Ghouls

This feature-length drama presents a gritty, hard look at the Indian residential school system through the eyes of a tough, capable teenager named Aila. After her mother dies and her father is thrown into jail, Aila and her Uncle Burner take over the family drug business. Aila manages to stay out of St. Dymphna’s, the residential school, by selling just enough dope to pay off Popper, the sadistic agent who runs the place. But when her drug money is stolen and her father returns from prison, the precarious balance of Aila’s world is destroyed. Fight or flight are her only options, and Aila’s not one to run.

Throughout the winter semester, the Centre for Indigenous Studies will be having monthly lunchtime film screenings. All are welcome to attend!
