Discovery Cinema: Jordan River Anderson, The Messenger

Join us for Discovery Cinema, a Saturday afternoon matinee series for families. This June, we’re screening a series of films in honour of both Indigenous History Month and Pride Month. These films reflect on themes of identity, culture, decolonization, human rights, intersectionality, and healing from a wide range of Indigenous and 2SLGBTQ filmmakers.

Saturday, June 1, 1 PM
Film: Jordan River Anderson, The Messenger
Director: Alanis Obomsawin
Year: 2019
Runtime: 65 minutes
Country: Canada
Rating: PG

The story of a young boy forced to spend all five years of his short life in hospital while the federal and provincial governments argued over which was responsible for his care, as well as the long struggle of Indigenous activists to force the Canadian government to enforce “Jordan’s Principle” — the promise that no First Nations children would experience inequitable access to government-funded services again.

This screening is free and open to the public.
Thank you to the National Film Board of Canada for assisting with this screening.
