“Jojo Rabbit” director Taika Waititi is set to executive produce Danis Goulet’s female-driven indigenous sci-fi dystopian thriller “Night Raiders” which stars Amanda Plummer, Elle-Maija Tailfeathers and Alex Tarrant.
In the Canada-New Zealand co-production, a military occupation controls disenfranchised cities in post-war North America. Children are the property of the state and a desperate Cree woman joins an underground band of vigilantes to infiltrate a state children’s academy to get her daughter back.
Filming is now taking place in and around Toronto. Tara Woodbury, Paul Barkin, Ainsley Gardiner, Georgina Condor and Chelsea Winstanley will produce.
