Our People Will Be Healed
First screened in September 2017
Director: Alanis Obomsawin. Documentary about the promising models of First Nations education and cultural preservation currently implemented in and around Norway House in Manitoba.

Twitter Capsule: TIFF peak so far. Buoyant but hardly naïve vision of new indigenous education and cultural preservation.

VOR:   Obomsawin has been Canada's leading indigenous filmmaker for a half-century. Of her 50 films, this is among the most detailed and revelatory. Hard-won uplift.
