CATEGORIES OF THIS FILM
This documentary reveals Canada's darkest secret - the deliberate extermination of indigenous (Native American) peoples and the theft of their land under the guise of religion. This never before told history as seen through the eyes of this former minister (Kevin Annett) who blew the whistle on his own church, after he learned of thousands of murders in its Indian Residential Schools.
Before watching this film, I had always viewed Canada as a place of peace and justice for all. The allegations in this film are almost unbelievable. I wondered how this could be true, if I had never heard of these allegations against native people. But as the film progresses and grown men and women cry as they recount the horror stories of their youth, the film becomes more believable. The production quality on this film is somewhat lacking and there is a issue syncing the sound but what is lost in production is compensated in the emotions of those telling stories. If the allegations of this film are true, given the strength of the opposition and the marginalization of the victims, there will be a very tough fight against the Canadian authorities and the Church. Then again,the passions of those who have lost loved ones and have been abused can be extremely powerful. Watch the film and decide for yourself, who you believe.
