Edge of the Knife is a feature length Haida language film about pride,
tragedy, and penance. Adiits’ii, the lead character in the film, is
mentally and physically pushed to the brink of survival and becomes
Gaagiixiid/Gaagiid – the Haida Wildman. The Gaagiixiid is one of
Haida’s most popular stories, sustained over the years though song and
performance. This project is a community initiative with strong support
from the Haida people as well as from the Council of the Haida Nation.
Playing at Park and Tilford Cinemas.
