On Friday, January 20th, we will be screening the new Canadian film Dark Nature directed by Berkley Brady in H100 from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. Organized by our Indigenous Initiatives department, this is an opportunity to enjoy Indigenous art and learn more about the film-making process from Métis director, Berkley Brady. Tickets are available on Eventbrite here.
Filmed in the beautiful Canadian Rockies, this female-led thriller tackles trauma and grief with a suspenseful storyline and uniquely stunning visuals. Named as part of the Cannes’ Fantastic 7 for 2022, this is a can’t-miss film that follows a group of women on an outdoor retreat for surviving trauma, located in the Rocky Mountains.
As they move deeper into the wilderness and their treatment, the women begin to think something is lurking out there. Could it be a violent ex – or something worse?
Telling the story of a therapy group that is forced to confront the monsters of their past, Dark Nature is a horror/suspense film that is not suitable for children. Following this screening, Berkley will participate in a Q&A session to offer insight into her creative process and answer audience questions.
Join us to screen this Canadian horror/thriller in our theatre room, H100, located in the Heritage Link. Admission is $10.00 and includes a drink and fresh popcorn! All funds raised will go directly to funding Indigenous Initiatives at St. Mary’s.
