By Noel Ransome THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO- Sarah Del Seronde is a big believer in interrogating the word “legacy,” particularly as it relates to her late husband, the filmmaker Jeff Barnaby. Seronde, who is also a filmmaker, said it feels strange to switch from being Barnaby’s partner to talking about the impact of his work now that he’s gone. “His work is still continuing, so I guess the word legacy feels finite,” she said. Before his death in October, the 46-year-old had an outsized influence on Indigenous storytelling, and Seronde said that part of his work is ongoing. Barnaby wrote, directed and edited the drama “Rhymes for Young Ghouls” and the zombie film “Blood Quantum.” Last week, Netflix and imagineNATIVE announced the Jeff Barnaby Grant in honour of his contributions
