BLOOD QUANTUM, 2019
Directed by Jeff Barnaby
Runtime: 96 minutes
The term “blood quantum” refers to a colonial system enforced on Indigenous peoples in North America which determines their individual status and rights based on their “percentage” of Indigenous ancestry. It is a tool of control, assimilation, and erasure of Indigenous peoples.
In this brilliantly provocative horror film set in an isolated Mi’qmaw community, the Indigenous population remains immune to a raging zombie virus infecting the surrounding white population.
Blood soaked, fast paced and darkly comic, Blood Quantum is a wild ride using the zombie genre as a vehicle to explore white supremacy, colonialism, genocide, and Indigenous self-determination.
