    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.
