Night Raiders

Director: Danis Goulet (Cree/Métis) Year: 2021 Run Time: 101min

A compelling and propulsive dystopian thriller, Night Raiders follows Niska (Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers), a Cree mother, as she travels across a war-torn Turtle Island (North America) in a desperate attempt to save her daughter from a forced re-education camp. Niska joins forces with a group of underground resistance fighters seeking to free their children and save their future.

Anchored by an incredible lead performance from Tailfeathers along with a stellar supporting cast, this powerful and heartfelt debut feature from Danis Goulet premiered at TIFF in 2021 and was nominated for Best Canadian Film by the Toronto Critics’ Association.

Night Raiders should become the most talked-about Canadian film of the year. And for good reason.” – Barry Hertz, The Globe and Mail
