Our Films

4 Seasons of Reconciliation film series is comprised of short documentary films set in Canada on the heels of the final report from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The project chronicles four stories on reconciliation, each to be released at a different season. The series is accompanied by bonus features highlighting reconciliation champions from across the lands in Canada. Its aim is to inspire reconciliation through media arts.



An Awakening of Indigenous Knowledge

In an extraordinary display of resilience, a group of Elders out on the land address the importance of Indigenous knowledge. These residential school Survivors shine a light on a future where this traditional knowledge system may be called upon to assist humanity.


Douglas Cardinal

An Anishinaabe raised in Blackfoot territory, architect Douglas Cardinal's curvilinear vision has produced instantly-recognizable monuments to Indigenous culture in the national capitals of both Canada and the United States. The film reveals how his Anishinaabe culture and Indigenous worldview fuel his creative genius.


Reconciliation on Bay St. 

Resources from their traditional territories fuel Canada's economic growth, yet Indigenous peoples often live in Third World conditions.  Successful First Nations and non-Indigenous entrepreneurs and leaders propose remedies they predict would  benefit the whole country.
