The Road Forward

Film Synopsis

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. Duration: 1hr 41min.

When: August 15th, 7:15pm ( door open 6:45pm)

Where: The Bachir/Yerex Presentation Space at The Commons @ 401, 401 Richmond St. West, suite 440, Toronto

There will be a Q&A session after the screening with guest speaker Cheri Maracle

Tickets: $10 at the door (cash)
