The inspiring true story of 'The Grizzlies' is heading to cinemas across Australia! Featuring remarkable raw performances from its young Indigenous cast, it's the perfect uplifting film to captivate audiences of any age.
The award-winning drama explores how a group of Inuit high school students living in Kugluktuk, a small arctic town with the highest teen suicide rate in North America, transform their lives and community after their teacher starts a youth lacrosse team.
The film also delves into the effects of issues like intergenerational trauma on First Peoples communities, highlighting the adversities the real-life Grizzlies and their community overcame to bring the teen suicide rate down to zero in Kugluktuk.
Nearly two decades after it began, the Grizzlies program is still going to this day.
