If there’s any film at this year’s KCFF that’ll have audiences up on the feet and cheering, it’s most definitely this big-hearted drama. A producer turned first-time director, Miranda de Pencier made THE GRIZZLIES in close collaboration with members of the Inuit community at the heart of this incredible story. Ben Schnetzer plays a schoolteacher who arrives from the south to Kugluktuk, a town full of young people facing daunting challenges and struggles, including the highest suicide rate in North America. While lacrosse doesn’t seem like an answer to any of these problems, the newcomer’s belief in the healing and galvanizing power of sport becomes infectious as he gradually gains the trust of his students. Whether they’re conveying joy or pain, the ensemble cast of performers – including such standouts as Paul Nutarariaq and Emerald MacDonald – bring enormous energy to a remarkable and inspiring portrait of life in the north.
