This twisting dramatic thriller follows Avery (Glen Gould), a disgraced First Nations boxer and ex-con, as he’s hired to abduct a runaway (Amanda Crew) from a crack house in the city’s notorious Charlie Zone. Charlie Zone was the former police name for the north end of Halifax, Nova Scotia and it’s a term “very familiar to the people who live there,” said director and co-writer Michael Melski. “Although not all of the action is set there, it’s as much a state of mind.” Charlie Zone, the film, is a harrowing ride through the underbelly of Halifax, a gritty panoramic of a place where drugs, crime and violence have become commonplace. Its focus is on two lost souls – societal outcasts – who can change each other, make each other stronger, and through an ordeal across a city, find a mutual redemption.

Charlie Zone was named Best Dramatic Feature at the 2012 imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival in Toronto and won four awards at the Atlantic Film Festival including Best Atlantic Feature, Outstanding Direction, Cinematography, and Outstanding Performance by an Actor.
