The Sun At Midnight – The Kirsten Carthew Interview

2017 SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL: The vast, magnificent country of Canada’s Northwest Territories is home to the Gwich’in people, an indigenous population whose relationship with the flora and fauna of the unforgiving landscape dates back many centuries. In The Sun at Midnight, director Kirsten Carthew utilises the backdrop of the land and its people to tell a deeply affecting coming-of-age tale, in which a teenage girl of Gwich’in ancestry (played by Devery Jacobs) must reconnect with her heritage to survive in the Arctic Circle wilderness. “Immersion in nature supports self-discovery and mental wellness,” says Carthew, whose semi-autobiographical narrative and stunning imagery represents a remarkable debut feature.

Indie Tuesdays: White Raven

Old friends Pete (Steve Bradley), Jake (Aaron Brooks), Kevin (Andrew Dunbar), and Dan (Shane Twerdun) are about to get together for their yearly guys weekend. It’s a chance for them to reconnect, as well as getting away from the problems of their everyday life. Jake is dealing with job loss that is putting stress on his marriage. Dan has been avoiding relationships by hooking up with waitresses at his work, but he’s gotten one of them pregnant and he’s not sure what to do. Kevin is pretty sure that his wife has been cheating on him, and Pete is still dealing with the break up of his last relationship, even though it’s been 3 years. Once the men reach the vast wilderness, one of them slowly starts to lose his grip on reality, threatening to take himself and the rest of his friends down a dangerous path. Writer/director Andrew Moxham delivers a slowly paced, but unnerving thriller with White Raven. The film may not hide its secrets very well, and it’s rather obvious who the unstable character is going to be, but with strong performances and a very natural script, the end result is quite satisfying.
