Here’s the first trailer for Jeff Barnaby’s Rhymes for Young Ghouls — “gritty,” “harrowing,” “explosive” and one of Canada’s Top Ten films of 2013, according to TIFF.
We were previously charmed with teenage dealer Aila’s monologue about her highly-specialized blunt business. The trailer gives a bit more context. Set on an Aboriginal reservation in 1970s Canada, the film is about a 15-year-old girl vs. the cultural genocide and abuse of the forced boarding school system, the white cops, the competition and a few thugs that just need to get knocked out.
The film is gearing up for a theatrical release in Canada, and hopefully the US.
