Film review: ‘The Seventh Fire’ ★★★★

“About one in ten every ten years makes it out of here,” says a father exasperated by an errant, drug-peddling son. The outlook for young members of the White Earth Indian Reservation is crushingly bleak. From the outset of The Seventh Fire, the first feature length documentary from Jack Pettibone Riccobono, it’s bracingly candid in both tone and image.

The Seventh Fire is released to limited UK cinemas on 13th May – read my full review at CineVue here.
