The Road Forward, a musical documentary by Marie Clements, connects a pivotal moment in Canada’s civil rights history-the beginnings of Indian Nationalism in the 1930s-with the powerful momentum of First Nations activism today. The Road Forward‘s stunningly shot musical sequences, performed by an ensemble of some of Canada’s finest vocalists and musicians, seamlessly connect past and present with soaring vocals, blues, rock, and traditional beats. A rousing tribute to the fighters for First Nations rights, a soul-resounding historical experience, and a visceral call to action.

Director Marie Clements will be in attendance and a Q&A will take place following the screening, in partnership with the Pacific Opera Victoria.
