A significant landmark in the short history of Canadian Indigenous film, First Nations filmmakers Gwaai Edenshaw and Helen Haig-Brown's film is set during the 19th century and performed entirely in the endangered Haida language. Inspired by the Gaagiixiid/Gaagiid wildman of Haida mythology, Edge of the Knife follows nobleman Adiits’ii as he descends into madness and transforms into ‘The Wildman’. Can he be rescued and returned to his humanity? A startling, absorbing drama, from the producers of The Fast Runner and Searchers.
