Jane and the Wolf, Directed by Nadine Arpin and Rachel Garrick

“In the 1960s, Pagwa River was a booming railroad town populated by second generation Crees. During one

cold winter, the community was being stalked by a lone wolf. Every attempt to kill the wolf failed. Jane

recognized the wolf as a spirit sign from the ancestors. Ridiculed for her beliefs, Jane set out alone to kill the

wolf using the old ways.”

Run time: 10 minutes
