We Were Children is a 2012 National Film Board docu-drama about the experiences of First Nations children in the Canadian Indian residential school system. The film was directed by Tom Wolochatiuk and combines interviews with dramatic re-creations of the children's real-life experiences. Learn more...
We need to hear the truth of our history, understand the legacy of residential schools and honour the children who were taken from their families, many of whom never returned. This is a film about two children who were taken to residential schools.
Join to watch and engage in learning discussion. The film will be shown from 4:00-5:30 p.m. It will be followed by a break so viewers can process what they have seen and heard. We will re-convene for a facilitated discussion from 6:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.
Warning: this film contains disturbing content and is recommended for audiences 16 years of age and older. Parental discretion, and/or watching this film within a group setting, is strongly advised.
