      "It's so culturally involved and an inspiration for other Nations to do it."

      "I think most people here would probably watch it by private showings."

      'The script is based, or inspired by, traditional Haida stories.'

      'Our story is definitely fiction but it's based in reality.'

      'We went over and over and over that script so many times.'

      'We consulted a lot.'
