The National Film Board of Canada has launched a new film about francophone Quebecers who have lived among Natives and the Inuit.
The film, called La Rencontre, was screened Oct. 31 in Montreal. Although no Natives or Inuit are interviewed in the film, it does have beautiful footage from Salluit and Chisasibi.
The film shows some of the misconceptions white people have about Natives and the experiences faced by white people married to Natives and Inuit. One of them is Chisasibi’s Dolores Washipabano.
The film is available by calling 514-496-6895. Thanks to Richard Desrosiers for providing The Nation with tickets.
