Film Screening of Soop on Wheels + Q and A with Film Maker Dr. Sandy Greer

In recognition of Indigenous Disabilities Awareness Month we will be screening Dr. Sandy Greer’s documentary Soop on Wheels featuring Everette Soop. This is a truth-telling and moving story of a First Nations man living with a disability and being an authentically Indigenous man in the late 80’s and early 90’s. His work as a cartoonist, journalist and activist has since been widely recognized. We are thrilled to host Dr. Sandy Greer for Q and A session following.
