Here First: Rhymes For Young Ghouls


Mon., Aug. 14, 7:30-8:45 p.m. 2017
Starting off grim and growing ever grimmer, “Rhymes for Young Ghouls” is a blood- and booze-soaked revenge drama marking the impressive debut of filmmaker Jeff Barnaby. Set on the Red Crow Mi’gMaq reservation in Quebec, Canada, during the mid-‘70s, the film takes place during a not-so-proud period in Canadian history when, by government decree, native children under the age of 16 were required to attend residential schools. Writer-director Barnaby weaves a surprising amount of tenderness into the fabric of violence, as well as a good measure of magic realism, to keep the gritty story engaging.
