Forced isolation and assimilation of aboriginal peoples stole their identity and independence, leaving them at the mercy of the 'superior culture.' This system has failed, creating turmoil, suspicion, and dysfunction. Outsiders have again injected themselves into La Loche in an attempt to solve the problem, one originally of their making. The European attitude of "we know best," shrouded in best intentions, is not working and no one is talking about it.
A national documentary film festival, which serves to highlight human rights issues in Canada and abroad.
When? July 23 and 24, @ 6pm
July 25 @ 1pm
Where? the NFB Toronto Mediatheque
@ 150 John Street (at Richmond St. W, Osgoode Subway Stn)
See you then!
