nîpawistamâsowin : nous nous lèverons

The killing of Colten Boushie is one of the darkest episodes in recent Canadian history. On August 9, 2016, the young Cree man from the Red Pheasant Nation died at Gerald Stanley’s farm from a gunshot to the head. After a highly publicized trial, Stanley was acquitted of murder, raising serious questions about racism in the Canadian justice system and the perpetuation of violence against First Nations. Indigenous filmmaker Tasha Hubbard (Naissance d’une famille, RIDM 2017) goes beyond the headlines for a deep dive into the courageous struggle of the Boushie family, from the Prairies to the United Nations. Her detailed examination of a system built on centuries of colonial domination joins a heart-breaking portrait and an urgent call to action.

Presented in collaboration with McCord Museum and Montreal First Peoples' Festival
