Real To Reel
A new program at AUC meets on the first Monday of the month in the Historic Chapel.
Looking to watch great documentary films that focus on issues of life, faith and events that shape all of our lives? This group is for you! Come along for a good night of interesting cinema and meaningful discussion to inform and inspire. Please join us on Monday February 3, 7 pm, for the screening of Birth of a Family (NFB). In this deeply moving feature-length documentary, three sisters and a brother meet for the first time. Removed from their young Dene mother during the infamous Sixties Scoop, they were separated as infants and adopted into families across North America. Betty Ann, Esther, Rosalie, and Ben were only four of the 20,000 Indigenous Canadian children taken from their families between 1955 and 1985, to be either adopted into white families or live in foster care. As the four siblings piece together their shared history, their connection deepens, and their family begins to take shape. Hope to see you there!
