Description

Told through the eyes of a native punk rock band, this video explores the lingering effects that residential schools still have on generations of First Nation communities. It challenges difficult and confusing Canadian political views and highlights other challenges faced by many native people in Canada. The band members' experiences of living on reserves are featured while the band's music provides a musical backdrop for the film.
