The White Archer (50:00, Super 16mm, 2010)
(Review from the 2010 Atlantic Film Festival)
Halifax-based filmmaker John Houston’s new film is a startling hour-long drama adapted from a story in his father James Houston’s 1967 collection of Inuit legends. The magic realist tale revolves around a young man who must train with ghostly elders in a parallel universe to master a terrifying bow in order to gain justice over the killers of his family. Using extraordinary location work with dashes of imaginative art direction and a self-conscious framing structure, The White Archer is a starkly original Inuit drama that takes northern storytelling to a whole new place entirely.
