The Walk a Mile Film Project
King’s Theatre is pleased to present The Walk-A-Mile Film Project, a series of 5 short documentary films that are designed to educate and encourage frank conversations about the reality of the life and history of Aboriginal peoples in Canada. The films, which are the creation of award winning film maker Michelle Derosier, are each 10-15 minutes long and address subjects such as treaties, racism, violence against women, and the way forward.
The project was a collaboration between the City of Thunder Bay and Thunderstone Pictures to bring discussions on diversity and relationship-building into sharper focus. The film aims to encourage all community members, no matter where they come from, to fully understand historical Aboriginal and community issues in their current context so that we can have discussions that are both informed as well as welcoming and respectful.
Film Producer John Hannam from Thunder Bay will be in attendance, and will be joined by a member of the local Mi’kmaq community for a discussion following the film.
