Cinema Politica Dawson – Birth of a Family
February 4 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pmFree
As a part of Social Science Week, the Dawson First Peoples Initiative and Cinema Politica are proud to present a series of screenings of Indigenous-directed documentaries during the Continuing Education time block.
On Monday, February 4 at 6:30pm, come watch the 2016 documentary feature Birth of a Family. This deeply moving documentary follows three Dene sisters and a brother, adopted as infants into separate families across North America, who meet together for the first time. They spend a week in Banff, Alberta, sharing what they know about their mother and stories about their lives and the struggles they went through as foster kids and adoptees. As the four siblings piece together their shared history, their connection deepens, bringing laughter with it, and their family begins to take shape.
