Indian Horse follows Saul Indian Horse as he survives residential school and the racism of the 1970s. A talented hockey player, Saul must find his own path as he battles stereotypes and alcoholism.
Indian Horse premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival and later screened at the 2017 Vancouver International Film Festival. It was nominated for Best Supporting Actor [Sladen Peltier] at the 2018 Canadian Screen Awards.
Toronto Star applauded the film saying "Indian Horse endures, and commands attention."
NOW Toronto noted “The three actors who play Saul Indian Horse over some 30 years of his life – Sladen Peltier, Forrest Goodluck and Ajuawak Kapashesit – are uniformly terrific.”
The Hollywood Reporter praised cinematographer Yves Bélanger's work, calling the film "beautifully shot."
