Sera-Lys McArthur

2021 is turning out to be a big year for Sera-Lys McArthur. The alum of series such as Arctic Air and Burden of Truth is starring in two films at Fantasia Fest this year, a short (which she also produced) called Kwêskosîw (She Whistles) and the feature film Don’t Say Its Name, a horror film which had its world premiere this week at the festival. 

I sat down with Sera-Lys on zoom this week to discuss both films and the state of indigenous filmmaking in Canada.
