About the Event
Two young urban dwellers, one a Blackfoot aboriginal named Cowboy and the other a ChineseCanadian newcomer named Chris, embark on a spiritual journey across traditional Blackfoot territory. Through thousands of years of ancient history guided by the wisdom of modern day elders, they find the beginnings of the long road to reconciliation between indigenous and non-indigenous people. “Elder in the Making” is a feature documentary inviting all residents of North America to explore the tragic and hopeful history of their home. Through the journey of two unlikely travel companions, this film uncovers our responsibility as stewards of the land and of the generations yet to come.
Please join us after the film for a Q&A with the film's director, Chris Hsiung.
