Please join us on Tuesday, November 5, at the Winnipeg Art Gallery for the world premiere of Freedom Road!

Freedom Road is a National Film Board of Canada five-film series presenting powerful accounts of lived history from band members of Shoal Lake 40 Anishinaabe First Nation – where Winnipeg gets its water. That the world premiere screening of this unique, community-led project is happening at “the other end of the pipe” is rich terrain for considering our collective relationship to water, and to each other.

A post-screening panel with band members Daryl Redsky, Roxanne Greene, director Angelina McLeod and Winnipeg-based historian Adele Perry, will highlight the complex, ongoing work of Shoal Lake 40 in resolving a brutal colonial legacy – one that is inseparable from the history of this place.
