A Tribute to Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women

While Canadians wait for the Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls to begin its interviews, Moon Water, a documentary honouring missing and murdered women in British Columbia is now available on DVD. Rita Jasper provides a gritty, street-level perspective in three 30-minute chapters. Shot in Vancouver, the documentary gives voice to those who remember the women and honour them--from the perspective of loved ones (Chapter 1) and from the perspective of survivors (Chapter 2).  Chapter 3 reflects on the investigation and the systemic racism in society that has allowed this phenomenon to continue in Vancouver for decades. While Indigenous women and girls are missing and murdered across Canada, incidents of these crimes are disproportionately high in British Columbia compared to other provinces.
