Indian Horse

Adapted from Richard Wagamese’s acclaimed novel, Indian Horse follows Saul Indian Horse, a young Canadian First Nations boy, who survives the brutal Indian residential schooling system overseen by Christian priests and, against all the odds, becomes a star ice hockey player. There is a triumph-over-adversity aspect to this film, but at its more worrying heart is the awful way Saul and his classmates are treated at school (beaten, kept in cages and worse), far from their own culture and heritage, and this contrasts with the sporting highs.
