Abstract
The sad history of the Canadian government's residential school program has had a profound effect on First Nations peoples across the country. For filmaker Nadia McLaren, its personal history as well; her Ojibway grandmother was forced into a residential school and its repercussions have echoed through her family. Looking to understand her loving but troubled grandmother, McLaren interviews seven First Nations elders about their experiences in residential schools. Mixing stark animated moments with human faces and home movie footage, this is a raw and honest documentary about a difficult chapter in Canadian history - a chapter that, for some, is not over.
