Red Snow: Q&A with Asivak Koostachin

On January 22, 2021, CIS will be hosting a live Q&A with Asivak Koostachin, star of Red Snow (2019). The film is about Dylan, a Gwich’in soldier from the Canadian Arctic, caught in an ambush in Kandahar, Afghanistan. His capture and interrogation by a Taliban Commander releases a cache of memories connected to the love and death of his Inuit cousin, Asana, and binds him closer to a Pashtun family as they escape across treacherous landscapes and through a blizzard that becomes their key to survival.

Watch the movie now on Criterion or CBC Gem.

Learn more about Asivak and his experience on set in a special interview he did with CIS this past summer.
