Documentary Film Festival: Waseskun

April 18th, 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Filmed in cinéma vérité style, this feature-length doc follows a group of incarcerated men with troubled pasts as they undergo treatment based on Indigenous philosophy at the Waseskun Healing Center. The focus of the program is to provide help and healing for these men who have grown up in difficult communities and need a more comprehensive approach to rehabilitation; one that addresses the mind, body and soul.  Director Steve Patry spent a full year with these men, gaining their trust and confidence. The result is a remarkable and gripping film about learning to overcome suffering and finding balance. This film is recommended for those interested in learning about a holistic approach to rehabilitation.  Directed by: Steve Patry  2016, 89 min
