Between 1955 and 1985, 20,000 Indigenous children were taken from their families in Canada and were either adopted into white families or placed in the foster-care system. In this deeply moving documentary by Saskatoon-based First Nations/Métis filmmaker and educator Tasha Hubbard, four siblings born to the same Dene mother in the 1960s come together for the first time. Over the course of a few fateful (and sometimes fun) days in Banff, Betty Ann, Esther, Rosalie and Ben take their very emotional first steps toward becoming the family they might’ve been, a process that Hubbard’s film captures with great sensitivity and insight.
“Hubbard captures a powerful event of restorative catharsis.” — Patrick Mullen, POV Magazine
