SAAG Cinema Presents: Our People Will Be Healed

September 15, 02:30pm - 04:30pm
SAAG Cinema Presents
Our People Will Be Healed by Alanis Obomsawin 
Our People Will Be Healed, Alanis Obomsawin’s 50th film, reveals how a Cree community in Manitoba has been enriched through the power of education. The Helen Betty Osborne Ininiw Education Resource Centre in Norway House, north of Winnipeg, receives a level of funding that few other Indigenous institutions enjoy. Its teachers help their students to develop their abilities and their sense of pride. In addition to teaching academic subjects, the school reconnects students with their ancestral culture.
Director: Alanis Obomsawin
Year: 2017
Duration: 97 minutes
The SAAG is honoured to be partnering Reconciliation Lethbridge on September 15 for a closing event for Kapwani Kiwanga | Sunlight by Fireside: The Ash Annals. In addition to the film screening, we will host guided public tours of the current exhibitions from 1-2 PM. 
After the film, at 4:30 PM guests will enjoy light refreshments followed by the final earth being returned to Galt Gardens by dignitaries from Reconciliation Lethbridge Advisory Committee.
