Night Raiders
The year is 2043. A military occupation controls disenfranchised cities in post-war North America. Children are property of the State. A desperate Cree woman (Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers) joins an underground band of vigilantes to infiltrate a State children’s academy and get her daughter back. Marking the feature film directorial debut from award-winning Cree/Métis writer/director, Danis Goulet, Night Raiders is a female-driven dystopian drama about resilience, courage and love.
