TIFF Ajax Film Circuit presents THE GRIZZLIES
: Based on a true story, Russ Sheppard (Ben Schnetzer), a young teacher has just moved to Kugluktuk, Nunavut â a community that had one of the highest suicide rates in North America in 1998, when the film is set. When it comes to Russâ attention that one of his students, Kyle (Booboo Stewart), is using the school storage bins to seek refuge from his abusive father, Russ decides to start an after-school lacrosse program in an attempt to offer his students a safe space. This film is a testament to the spirit, tenacity, and leadership of Inuit youth, persisting in spite of immense pressure and hardship.
