Lisa Jackson

When she was ten, Lisa Jackson fled Toronto to live with relatives in Vancouver to escape her mother's depression, alcoholism and prescription drug abuse - legacies of the residential school experience. Now, sifting through her memories and her mother's letters, she constructs a portrait of a mother whose drive to love her daughter triumphed over her demons of addiction. 

The Pristine Coast

The Pristine Coast

Scott Renyard

The marine ecosystem off the coast of British Columbia is trouble. Alexandra Morton, a whale biologist who lives in the Broughton Archepelago, began to document the decline of pink and chum salmon in the late 1990's. Just prior to the decline of salmon populations there was a massive expansion of open net pen fish farming on the west coast of Canada.

Raymond Yakeleya

In the late 1970s, Raymond Yakeleya travelled to five communities in the Mackenzie Delta in the Northwest Territories.  He talked with elders, some of them his relatives, from the Slavey and Loucheux tribes about their memories of the past and their thoughts for the future.  With the help of camera operator Bob Charlie and editor Bill Stewart, Yakeleya created a 60 minute documentary in two parts--a significant time capsule that reflects on the history of these people whose their lives were forever altered by the influx of Europeans into their traditional territories.

CHILDREN OF REDRESS

CHILDREN OF REDRESS

Greg Masuda

In 1942 the Canadian Government ordered the uprooting of 22,000 men, women, and children in one of the nations' largest and cruelest dispossessions and dispersals ever. A generation later, Japanese Canadians fought back and won. Twenty-five years later, Children of Redress uncovers the struggle in detail.
