Giiwe: This is Home Accepted into Regina International Film Festival

The Chang School is proud to announce that Giiwe: This is Home has been named an official selection of the Regina International Film Festival, where it will screen on August 7, 2018. The film was previously selected for the 2018 Auckland International Film Festival.

Giiwe: This is Home is the first production completed through The Chang School Film Hub. The documentary chronicles the journey of an indigenous man named Brent who was taken from his home during the “Sixties Scoop,” when an estimated 20,000 indigenous children were taken from their homes and placed into white, middle-class families. The film follows Brent as he attempts to reconnect with his long-lost siblings, home and culture.

Congratulations to Certificate in Film Studies alumni Merle Robillard and Andrew Lau!
