Place of the Boss: Utshimassits
This documentary weaves together archival footage and present-day images to tell the story of the Mushuau Innu who were forced to relocate from their traditional lands to Davis Inlet, Labrador, in the 1960s. This resulted in physical dislocation, cultural collapse, and widespread despair. Moving past the news headlines of substance abuse, suicide and rural slum conditions, testimony from elders, band leaders and youth allows the voices of the community to express their own rarely heard point of view.
