The Sun at Midnight

Special screening and Q&A event with Canadian writer/director Kirsten Carthew

Set at the Arctic Circle, The Sun at Midnight tells the story of Lia, a 16 year-old urban princess. In the wake of her mother’s death, she is sent to spend the summer with her estranged grandmother in a small Subarctic community. Desperate to return to city life, she sets out into the vast Northern wilderness hoping to reach the nearest town. Totally lost, she is discovered by Alfred, a Gwich’in caribou tracker who reluctantly takes her under his wing as he navigates the massive landscape in search of a missing caribou herd. When Alfred is wounded in a bear attack Lia must push on to save both of their lives.

The film stars up-and-coming actor Devery Jacobs (American Gods) opposite Duane Howard, a much-loved Canadian actor best-known for his role as ‘Elk Dog’, the lead native warrior in The Revenant, starring Leonardo Di Caprio. Winner of 9 awards and having screened at over 40 film festivals around the world, The Sun at Midnight tells a tender story of friendship, that has captivated audiences internationally.

The film’s writer/director/producer Kirsten Carthew will be at Dendy Newtown following the screening on July 14 to discuss her filmmaking process in the remote and rarely-seen Northwest Territories of Canada.
