Learning Beyond the Classics

Rated R, 96 minutes, DCP
In English and Mi'kmaq with English subtitles.
Directed by Jeff Barnaby, whose short career was hugely influential both in Canada and throughout the cinema landscape, Blood Quantum is a vital component of the canon of Indigenous horror cinema. The dead are coming back to life and almost all of Earth's population are decimated due to a zombie virus, except for the isolated Mi'kmaq reserve of Red Crow in Canada, whose indigenous inhabitants are strangely immune to the zombie plague.
Co-presented by the Department of American Studies, Native American Initiatives, and the David A. Heskin and Marilou Brill Endowment for Excellence.
