Summary

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
 

Cast Kristian Bruun, Shaun Benson, Tasiana Shirley
