More on Young Ghouls by Jeff Barnaby

"Jian speaks with Mi'kmaq director Jeff Barnaby about his first feature film, Rhymes for Young Ghouls -- an unflinching, irreverent revenge fantasy involving residential schools. 

The filmmaker says he's interested in 'bare-knuckled' cinema, and would rather indulge in hyperbole than engage in "pity porn". The first audience he has in mind are aboriginal youth and other young people who are building up their identities, he tells Jian, adding that he was careful not to vilify or pity his characters." (Source)
