Description

Colten Boushie, a young Cree man from Saskatchewan, was killed by a bullet to the head on Gerald Stanley’s farm in 2016. After an investigation and trial, Stanley was found not guilty of second-degree murder. The verdict drew national attention and public outcry. Indigenous filmmaker Tasha Hubbard follows the Boushie family on a courageous journey all the way to the United Nations. (Winner HotDocs, DOXA, DGA, RIDM)
