Interview with Dana Moraes and Graham Richard

“I was mostly intrigued by the Haida language. Being in front of the camera wasn’t so much the big push. It was the language part and the fact that it was all going to be done in Haida language.” K_uun Jaad


“We all still do the same things. We have much more materialistic things around us. But it’s pretty much the same ideas of looking out for each other.” Brandon Kallio


“The hard part of it was when the other character was reading his lines back to me in the language, I didn’t know when my queue was to start my next line.” K_uun Jaad


“The language camp was pretty incredible.” Brandon Kallio


“I signed up for the Haida Gwaii mentor-apprentice program. I was one of the successful applicants for that. I’ll be starting that on April 15th.” K_uun Jaad

    Interview with Dana Moraes and Graham Richard

    'This particular script came to us very gradually. Very organically.'

    '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.'

    Interview with Dana Moraes and Graham Richard

    ‘I was born and raised in Skidegate’

    ‘I actually submitted a 50-pages story that I’ve written a long time ago. And that was too long and they wanted me to write something else but I didn’t get a chance to write anything else.’
