The Pass System: film screening and speaker eventExport this event to calendar

Tuesday, March 1, 2016 — 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM EST

Join the History Speaker Series and the Waterloo Aboriginal Education Centre for a special screening and director's talk on Tamarack Productions' documentary The Pass System

event posterThe Pass System illuminates Canada’s hidden history of racial segregation. For over 60 years, the Canadian government often denied Indigenous peoples the basic freedom to leave their reserves without a pass. Cree, Soto, Dene, Ojibwe and Blackfoot elders of the prairie land where this took place tell their stories of living under and resisting the system, and link their experiences to today. Acclaimed Cree actor and activist Tantoo Cardinal (Dances with Wolves, Legends of the Fall) narrates this investigative look into a little-known Canada.

Directed and produced by Alex Williams
Narrated by Tantoo Cardinal
Edited by Igal Hecht
Music by Aboriginal cellist and composer Cris Derksen.
Executive producer James Cullingham

The Pass System has been covered in the national media,  including coverage from the Toronto Star and from the CBC.

After the screening, Susan Roy will facilitate a panel discussion.

Please join us for this exciting and important event!
