Film adaptations of Indigenous bestsellers The Inconvenient Indian, the Trickster series to premiere at TIFF

Trickster stars Joel Oulette and Anna Lambe

Film adaptations of two Canadian Indigenous bestsellers will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Michelle Latimer directs Inconvenient Indian, a documentary based on Thomas King’s 2012 work about the colonization of Indigenous people in Canada.

Latimer also directed Trickster, a CBC series based on Eden Robinson’s Trickster trilogy. Ninety minutes of the series will premiere at TIFF before it begins airing on CBC later this fall. Season two of the series is already in production.
