History Speaker Series film screening: The Pass System Export this event to calendar

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

On Tuesday March 1 at 7:00pm, the History Speaker Series and the Waterloo Aboriginal Education Centre will host a screening of Tamarack Production's documentary The Pass System

The 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.
