Tanya Tagaq has shared the trailer for Ever Deadly, her new documentary made in collaboration with filmmaker Chelsea McMullan. The film features concert footage and sequences filmed on location in Nunavut, Canada, the country’s largest and northernmost territory. It’s set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month.
In a statement on the film, Tagaq said:
Tagag released her fifth album Tongues in January, drawing some of its lyrics from her 2018 book Split Tooth. It was selected for the long list of the 2022 Polaris Prize, an annual award for Canada’s best album of the year.
