nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up               

Thursday, December 10 | 2:00pm-4:00pm

In 2016, a young Cree man named Colten Boushie died from a gunshot to the back of his head after entering Gerald Stanley's rural property with friends. The jury's subsequent acquittal of Stanley captured international attention, raising questions about racism embedded within Canada's legal system and propelling Colten's family to national and international stages in their pursuit of justice. Directed by Tasha Hubbard, the film weaves a profound narrative encompassing the filmmaker's own adoption, the stark history of colonialism on the Prairies, and a transofmrative vision of a futrue where Indigenous children can live safely on their homelands.

Reversing the Body Clock              
Thursday, January 14 | 2:00pm-4:00pm

Because of our lifestyles, many of us are aging faster than we should be. Scientists now know that we have two ages — our birth age and our real body age — a reflection of how we’re aging on the inside. In Reversing Your Body Clock, three volunteers discover if they are aging badly and what can be done to stop it.  Over the course of three months, the volunteers are put through a variety of tests and placed on a lifestyle plan to turn back the clock on aging. But will it work?

Plastic Wars        
Thursday, February 11 | 2:00pm-4:00pm

Did the plastics industry use the lure of recycling to sell even more plastic? With the industry expanding and the crisis of ocean pollution growing, Plastic Wars investigates the fight over the future of plastics.  Plastic Wars examines the mounting crisis of plastic waste in the environment. Despite efforts to reduce the use of plastic, the plastics industry is rapidly scaling up new production and promoting a familiar solution: recycling. But some estimates say that no more than 10 percent of plastic produced has ever been recycled. The documentary reveals how plastic makers have publicly promoted recycling for decades, despite privately expressing doubts from almost the beginning that widespread plastic recycling would ever be economically viable.

This meeting will be held on Zoom. You can watch the film with the group at 2:00pm, or watch on your own and join us at 3:00pm for a great discussion!
