Three Feathers follows the journey of three young Indigenous men, Flinch, Bryce, and Rupert, who, after committing a violent crime, are sentenced by their community to live on the land for nine months with two Dene Elders. The story explores the power and grace of restorative justice and the cultural legacy that can empower future generations.
Three Feathers is unique in the history of film for having been shot in four different languages – South Slavey, Chipewyan, Bush Cree, and English. Written and directed by Carla Ulrich and based on the novel by Richard Van Camp, Three Feathers was filmed on location in Fort Smith, NWT and features an all-Northerners cast.
