Content Warning For Educators
This movie is uplifting and unflinching. It does deal with suicide.
But the story isn’t simply about suicide. This movie is, in part, an invitation. It invites us into deep conversation about colonial structures and the depth of the loss and pain they have caused.
Suicide isn’t simple. It is a response to an absolute loss of hope.
Within the Canadian population, First Nations and Inuit people have the highest rates of suicide-related behaviours. This is a direct response to the unique conditions birthed from colonialism, marginalization, institutionalized trauma, structural violence, racism, and prejudice.
Educators have the great privilege and deep responsibility of working with youth. Suicide is a challenging topic because of the pain it surfaces and dominant culture doesn’t have a lot of training in talking about pain, sadness or hopelessness. It is important for each educator to gauge their own comfort and skill level before bringing forward emotionally charged topics to students.
This movie is also an invitation to engage in a conversation about the power of resilient and hopeful and absolutely inspiring Inuit youth. To witness the strength born out of friendship and family. The constant message of this film reflects the importance of working together to move through tough times. This movie tells us clearly that suicide is never the answer.
This is a powerful message of hope and resilience.
