Blood Quantum by Jeff Barnaby as Part of Mother Tongue Film FestivalDélégation générale du Québec à New York Washington, D.C. Saturday, February 22, 2020
Something strange is happening around the Red Crow Mi’gMaq reserve: dead fish start coming back to life, followed shortly by dead humans. All too soon, the indigenous residents of Red Crow — remarkably immune to the hideous plague — find their community invaded by white refugees, whose survival they must ensure. Jeff Barnaby's dark sophomore feature, harrowing and unsettling, gives the zombie movie a very of-the-moment twist, nodding to the genre’s political roots while placing it firmly within the burgeoning militancy of the present day.
