In 2014, a group of Indigenous youth accompanied the Truth and Reconciliation Commission as it travelled across Canada, gathering testimony from former students of residential schools. Followed by a documentary filmaker, these young people learned the history of residential schools and their personal connection to that legacy. With the creation of a mural in an Edmonton LRT station serving as an act of reclamation, they explore intergenerational trauma, indigenous resilience and seek to define what “reconciliation” means. A panel discussion will follow the screening of this film.
