Film Screening

Monday, February 19: Finding Dawn film screening at The CinemathequeAcclaimed Métis filmmaker Christine Welsh embarks on an epic journey into the dark heart of Indigenous women's experience in Canada through her film Finding Dawn. She begins at Vancouver’s skid row where more than 60 poor women are missing, travels to the Highway of Tears in northern British Columbia, and onward to Saskatoon. Along the road to honour those who have passed, Welsh uncovers a reason for hope in Indigenous rights activists who inspire communities all along Highway 16 to come together to demand change.
