Truth and Reconciliation

12:00am - 12:30am

This documentary is about Canada’s reconciliation with its First Nations, told through the eyes of one woman in particular: Gunargie O’Sullivan a trans-generational survivor of the residential school system, raised by a non-indigenous family. Regaining contact with her native culture and her family as an adult, she now works as a broadcaster and an activist. We hear her tell her own story and include clips of her work and her family. Through these voices, we consider the progress of reconciliation and wonder how it’s genuinely possible while the crimes of colonialism continue.

Produced by James Mainguy and Laurence Gatinel for CiTR Docs Season 2. Find more info here:
