    When an alien invasion rocks the quiet hamlet of Pangnirtung, Nunavut, it falls on a group of teenage girls to fight back and defend their community. Her feature directing debut, Slash/Back offers a stylish vision from producer-director Nyla Innuksuk. Using makeshift weapons and their own horror movie knowledge, the quartet of teens show the invaders that “nobody f—s with the girls from Pang.” With a cast of local actors and an Inuit cultural lens on the invasion genre, this teen horror-comedy has more charm than an Arctic summer day has sunlight!

    “Slash/Back has an endearing charm that is hard to resist.” - Phuong Le, The Guardian

    2022. 86 min. English with French subtitles.

    Lorsqu’une invasion extraterrestre secoue le hameau tranquille de Pangnirtung, au Nunavut, c’est à un groupe d’adolescentes qu’il revient de riposter et de défendre leur communauté. La productrice-réalisatrice Nyla Innuksuk offre une perspective élégante dans Slash/Back, son premier long métrage. À l’aide d’armes de fortune et de leurs connaissances des films d’horreur, les quatre adolescentes montrent aux envahisseurs que « personne ne s’en prend aux filles de Pang ». Portée par des acteurs locaux et une approche culturelle inuite sur le thème de l'invasion, cette comédie d'horreur pour adolescents a plus de charme qu'une journée d'été arctique n'a de soleil !

    « Slash/Back a un charme attachant auquel il est difficile de résister. » – Phuong Le, The Guardian 

    2022. 86 min. Anglais avec sous-titres français.

    Based on the true story behind author A.A. Milne's beloved character, Winnie the Pooh, this is a tale of the remarkable friendship between a Canadian soldier and the cub that stood as a symbol of friendship and hope in a world plagued by war. 
    It was during the early days of World War I that veterinarian Lieutenant Harry Colebourn (Michael Fassbinder) purchased a small bear cub and named her Winnie after his hometown of Winnipeg. As the specter of war looms heavy in the conscience of the citizens and children of London, Winnie becomes the star attraction at the zoo. When a man named A.A. Milne brings his young son to visit the zoo, the story of the bear and her friendship with a far away soldier inspires him to create one of the most beloved characters in the history of children's literature. 

    2004. 90 min. English with French subtitles. 

    ___________________________________________ 

    Basée sur l'histoire vraie derrière le personnage bien-aimé de A.A. Milne, Winnie l'Ourson, le film est un conte de l'amitié remarquable entre un soldat canadien et l'ourson qui était un symbole d'amitié et d'espoir dans un monde en proie à la guerre. 
    C'est pendant les premiers jours de la Première Guerre mondiale que le vétérinaire lieutenant Harry Colebourn (Michael Fassbender) a acheté un petit ours et l'a nommé Winnie après sa ville natale de Winnipeg. Quand le spectre de la guerre arrive dans la conscience des citoyens et des enfants de Londres, Winnie devient l'attraction vedette du zoo. Quand un homme nommé A.A. Milne apporte son jeune fils à visiter le zoo, l'histoire de l'ours et son amitié avec un soldat lointain l'inspire à créer l'un des personnages les plus aimés dans l'histoire de la littérature pour enfants.

This heartwarming documentary traces the roots of this universally celebrated and uniquely Canadian children’s programme, its enduring legacy, and how it stayed true to its aim throughout its run of almost 30 years.
