This film premiere will be hosted by Director, Emma Power and Producer, Tanille Geib. They will host a talk back after the film viewing.
There will be no cost to attend this event. There will be complimentary vegan popcorn for all to enjoy. Cash bar will be open.
Thank you to all the crew who worked tirelessly on this production. Thank you to all the incredible performers we were lucky enough to capture their sacred connections. Thank you to all the communities on Coast Salish Territories who helped create this stunning project. Thank you.
This event will take place on the Lekwungen Territory, as represented today by the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. Let’s all take a moment to reflect on the privilege we have to offer community events that we can feel welcomed at when so much terror has come to the people of this land, and of Canada.

The Victoria Event Centre is on the second storey of a building up a rather steep flight of 27 stairs. There is a continuous handrail up the stairwell and our workers/organizers are available to provide assistance as directed.
Inside the Victoria Event Centre there is a gender inclusive wheelchair accessible washroom that technically fits necessary size dimensions, but is missing a bar and a handrail beside the toilet. There are two stalls, in the washroom, but only one of these has been renovated to meet 5’x5′ wheelchair clearance.
The Victoria Event Centre is a low-light environment, and although there are no fluorescents outside of the bathrooms and some brighter lit areas for lip-reading and signing, hazards are not well-lit and the lighting is not even throughout the venue. Strobe lights are not permitted.
