“Through Black Spruce” is a Don McKellar-directed adaptation of Joseph Boyden's 2008 novel. It tells the story of a search for a Cree woman (Suzanne) who went missing during a trip down to Toronto. Annie (Tanaya Beatty) follows her sister’s tracks to the big city, and ends up having an affair with a photographer who knew Suzanne. Shortly after things begin to fall apart and Annie finds her own safety at risk. While fictional, the story shines a light on the issue of missing and murdered aboriginal women, and the challenges that face isolated communities like Attawapiskat. Many of the actors have first-hand experience to these tragedies, and Producer/Actor Tina Keeper worked hard to make sure everyone felt safe. McKellar fell in love with Northern Ontario while shooting up there, in disbelief that tidal rivers, seals, and whales are part of the province. The fact that Moosonee has no roads posed some unique (not to mention muddy) continuity challenges for the director.
