Red Snow is a dramatic feature that begins when Dylan, a Gwich’in soldier from the Canadian Arctic, is caught in an ambush in 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. Written and directed by Marie Clements.

This movie made me realize how important it is to be a Indigenous Costume Designer and represent Indigenous Story with pride and honour. I am proud to be a part of this story being brought forth by Marie Clements and the film crew that stand beside her in making of this powerful story.
