The Grizzlies is a true heart-warmer

The Grizzlies is a true heart-warmer

We're a little bit in love with The Grizzlies, the directorial debut of Miranda de Pencier, just because it's the most affirming film you'll see this year!

It's the inspiring true story of how a group of Inuit high school students living in Kugluktuk, Nunavut, a small arctic town in Canada with the highest teen suicide rate in North America, transform their lives and community after their teacher starts a youth lacrosse team. Featuring remarkable performances by the young, Nunavut-based cast it's in New Zealand cinemas now - go see it!

The Grizzlies has shown at festivals such as Toronto Film Festival, Palm Springs International Film Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival and was a winner at the Directors Guild of Canada.
