Sorry for taking SO long to write. Life has been very busy in Toronto and elsewhere but things are really beginning to come together. Our film, In Jesus' Name: Shattering the Silence of St. Anne's Residential School, has received a number of very positive reviews.
As many of you know, the film is now being distributed to universities, colleges, public libraries and other institutions. It is our hope that many people will come to realize the 'realities' of the residential school system, and after viewing the film, to begin to take action to ensure that Indigenous rights everywhere are being honoured and upheld.
In the past few months, the film has received two film festivals awards, and has also screened in Thunder Bay and in Winnipeg with the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation/University of Manitoba. Our awards are listed on the webpage dedicated to the film.
Most notably, a segment of the film will be installed this year at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (Winnipeg). This film segment will be installed in the gallery dedicated to educating museum visitors about genocides and mass atrocities, the 'Breaking the Silence' gallery.
We will talk soon! Your comments are always appreciated.
