The 35th Annual Toronto International Film Festival begins September 9th and includes the premiere of “Wapawekka”.


It’s the story of a young Aboriginal hip hop singer who travels with his father to a remote cabin in northern Saskatchewan.


The film’s writer, director and producer Danis Goulet — who is originally from La Ronge — says language makes this a unique entry to the festival, noting it features both Cree and English.


Goulet says the film is based on her own experience and examines the cultural gaps which can exist within a family.
