Elder In The Making
Mount Royal University's Iniskim Centre and CSIF are excited to present a free screening of the feature documentary ELDER IN THE MAKING at Mount Royal on October 29th at 2:00pm
ELDER IN THE MAKING follows a Blackfoot Aboriginal and a Chinese-Canadian as they rediscover their shared heritage. This film invites all residents of North America to explore the tragic and hopeful history of their home and uncovers our responsibility as stewards of the land and of the generations yet to come.
The short film WAKE UP! by Jessie Short, recipient of the 2015 CSIF/ImagineNATIVE Mentorship will precede ELDER IN THE MAKING
A discussion with filmmakers Chris Hsiung, Cowboy Smithx and Jessie Short will follow the program
