Adam Garnet Jones’ Fire Song is a bold, uncompromising and necessary film that breaks new ground in Canadian cinema, and, more importantly, within Indigenous storytelling. Homophobia is no stranger to Indian country and stories of coming out are rarely given the stage they deserve in the arbours, campfires and living rooms of our nations. Boasting a cast of exciting young performers, it is newcomer Ma-Nee Chacaby, who steals every scene with a wily playfulness that bannocks the film together. While certain elements of plot do not satisfy, Jones’ vision and talent sustain his first feature film to a dramatic climax. Bravo!
