Join us as we recognize National Indigenous Day with a film screening and discussion of the feature film Indian Horse. Adapted from celebrated author Richard Wagamese’s award-winning novel, this moving drama sheds light on the dark history of Canada’s residential schools and the indomitable spirit of our nation’s Indigenous peoples. The story follows Saul Indian Horse through his mandatory attendance to residential school, the abuses he endures there and his escape through his prowess at hockey.
The screening will feature a post-viewing Q & A with a selection of the film’s filmmakers and actors to discuss the making of the film, its challenges and its importance in today’s society.
Offered in cooperation with the Oakville Partnership on Truth & Reconciliation and the Oakville Festivals of Film and Art.
This film is rated 14 A.
