Blood Quantum Tiff Premiere: The cast and crew on the powerful story at the heart of this new zombie movie

  • HeyUGuys
We present the red carpet interviews from the Midnight Madness Tiff premiere of Blood Quantum, a zombie movie with a difference. The film premiered at the 2019 Toronto Film Festival, and those attending were director Jeff Barnaby, and actors Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers, Michael Greyeyes, Forrest Goodluck, Kiowa Gordon, Stonehorse Lone Goeman, Olivia Scriven, Brandon Oakes.

Synopsis:

The dead are coming back to life outside the isolated Mi’gMaq reserve of Red Crow, except for its Indigenous inhabitants who are strangely immune to the zombie plague. The term “blood quantum” refers to a colonial blood measurement system that is used to determine an individual’s Indigenous status, and is criticized as a tool of control and erasure of Indigenous peoples. The words take on even more provocative implications as the title of Jeff Barnaby’s sophomore feature, which grimly depicts an apocalyptic scenario where in an isolated “Mi’gmaq” community discover they are

Toronto Film Review: ‘Blood Quantum’

  • Variety
Toronto Film Review: ‘Blood Quantum’
Blood Quantum” is a term applied to the long-standing, controversial practice of measuring a person’s percentage of indigenous heredity—and by extension, their supposed value, or lack thereof. As the title of Jeff Barnaby’s sophomore feature (following 2014’s more minimally horror-tinged drama “Rhymes for Young Ghouls”), that historic debit becomes a major plus, as the only people here miraculously immune to a zombie epidemic are full-blooded Natives living on Mi’gmaq tribal lands in northern Quebec.

This homegrown opener for Tiff’s Midnight Madness section has numerous strong elements, and the director-writer’s unforced cultural perspective refreshes some very well-trod genre ground, to a point. Still,. It’s nonetheless been sold to Shudder for U.S. distribution, and should attract home-format buyers in other territories with a polished assembly that reflects its status as reportedly the highest-budgeted North American film by an indigenous director to date.

Desiree Akhavan (‘The Miseducation of Cameron Post’): Queer rights ‘are under attack right now’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
“It was the most honest depiction of life as a teenager that I had ever read,” recalls Desiree Akhavan about the novel “The Miseducation of Cameron Post.” “It reminded me a lot of a John Hughes film” in the way it “captured that moment in life where you realize the adults don’t know what the hell they’re doing,” and you look to your “family of friends” to “decide together what’s right and wrong.” The fact that it also happened to be about the effects of gay conversion therapy on a young woman (Chloe Grace Moretz) was almost secondary.

Movie Review – The Miseducation of Cameron Post (2018)

The Miseducation of Cameron Post, 2018.

Directed by Desiree Akhavan.

Starring Chloë Grace Moretz, Sasha Lane, Forrest Goodluck, John Gallagher Jr., Owen Campbell and Jennifer Ehle.

Synopsis:

A lesbian teenager is sent by her family to a Christian camp where similar youngsters are taught to conquer their sexuality before being allowed back into the world.

It’s fair to say that queer cinema is in the midst of something of a boom period. Recent years have seen movies like Moonlight and Call Me By Your Name become Oscar juggernauts, while God’s Own Country charmed audiences all over the planet and, earlier this year, Love, Simon brought Lgbt issues into the very heterosexual world of the studio romcom. Arriving into the more indie corner of the market is The Miseducation of Cameron Post, which is a quietly harrowing journey into the dark, backwards industry of gay conversion therapy.

‘The Miseducation Of Cameron Post’ Review: Dir. Desiree Akhavan (2018)

The Miseducation Of Cameron Post review: Director Desiree Akhavan has been quoted describing her latest, The Miseducation of Cameron Post, as a “queer John Hughes film” – telling the story of a teen girl sent off to “pray away the gay”. Yet that remark doesn’t do the film justice. It channels its inner-Hughes, its inner Call Me By Your Name, even somewhat Jesus Camp, and is greater than the sum of its parts and one of the best of the year.

The Miseducation Of Cameron Post – Review

Audiences and critics are quick to label a film. Well, that’s a superhero film. Oh, that’s a cheesy comedy. Yeah, that’s that gay film that’s coming out. Sure, you could say that The Miseducation Of Cameron Post deals with gay and queer topics at a gay conversion therapy camp for teenagers. What’s interesting though about the film is the lack of labels the kids put on themselves or on their friends. They don’t say, “I’m gay or I’m a lesbian or I’m bi.” There is a childlike quality to this that speaks volumes of how they view themselves. Sure, you can call it “the delicate unique snowflake” generation, but I think there is more to it than that. They don’t see themselves as unique and without labels as much as they are still discovering who they are. These are high school students after all.

Forrest Goodluck: the Native American actor ripping up the rulebook

First seen in The Revenant, the star of gay conversion drama The Miseducation of Cameron Post talks sexual fluidity, tribal stereotypes – and casting his dog in a school play

Forrest Goodluck is an actor you don’t forget. A strong jaw, an enviable Elvis swoop of hair and dramatic eyebrows that demand you remember his face. The first time audiences saw him, in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s 2015 The Revenant, he was lunging at a villainous Tom Hardy, who mocked him for being half-Pawnee. “I told you to be invisible, son,” growled his fictional father Leonardo DiCaprio. That’s an order Goodluck could never obey, in the film or in the real world. The 20-year-old breakout talent is starring in five more films this year and next, including the Sundance Grand Jury prize-winner The Miseducation of Cameron Post. He plays Adam, a Native American teenager banished to a homosexual conversion camp
