nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up

October 16, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Screening Room and the KCFF present a special screening of nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up.

On a summer day in 2016, a young Indigenous man named Colten Boushie died from a gunshot to the head after entering Gerald Stanley’s rural property with his friends. The emotionally charged trial and acquittal of Stanley caused shock and outrage across Canada, capturing international attention and raising questions about prejudice within the judicial system, and anti-Indigenous racism in the nation.

Award-winning filmmaker Tasha Hubbard follows the journey of Colten’s family as they search for justice, taking their fight to the highest echelons of power and, ultimately, to the United Nations.

Tickets are $15 in advance.
