A film by Guillaume Sylvestre
Produced by Sylvie Kraser
Savage is a hard-hitting documentary that explores both a quest for identity, and the wills of three generations of Quebec aboriginals seeking to forge a place for themselves in today’s world. Through a cross-section of characters who share only a refusal to dwell on the negative – from members of the Huron tribe in Wendake to the Cree in Oujé-Bougoumou, by way of the Malecites from Lower Saint-Laurent and the Attikamek from Wemontaci – Savage draws us into the intimate world of a handful of Quebec Amerindians eager to find a voice that will show the world they exist and, more than anything, deserve to be treated as equals, as brothers, not as victims condemned to extinction.
