In August 2016 a farmer in rural Saskatchewan shot Colten Boushie, a 22-year-old Cree youth. The acquittal of his killer by an all-white jury thrust the Boushie family—and the struggle to end violence against First Nations people—into the headlines. While their story has been amplified by their activism, the family continues to seek justice. This screening celebrates 20 years of the imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival with a special appearance by artistic director Jason Ryle. 

Join us for a Q&A with filmmaker Tasha Hubbard and Executive Director of imagineNATIVE Jason Ryle after the screening!
