Over the Canada Day weekend, the team traveled to Ottawa to shoot with Douglas Cardinal as he attended the Museum of History’s new Canadian History Hall opening. We captured many amazing visuals that will greatly add to our final piece including Douglas’ moving speech which he gave at the event. We also had the chance to capture footage of Prince Charles, who was in attendance for Canada Day celebrations. Douglas had a chance to met with the Prince and the two had by all accounts a fruitful private conversation.
We also caught Douglas’ chat with the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, Elizabeth Dowdeswell and a few Anisinaabek Elders. All in all the day, though hectic, was immensely successful and the Canada 150 celebrations will prove a poetic backdrop in film.
