The Inverness Chapter of the Council of Canadians, in conjunction with
Cinema Politica, will be screening five outstanding films on Thursdays at
7:00 P.M. at the Renewal Centre in Mabou. The series will take us from
Alberta and a First Nations healing circle to India where women fight for
justice and equal rights, to San Francisco and the local food movement, and
to various parts of the globe where people confront climate change. Each
film seeks to find a solution to some of our time's most pressing
problems. A discussion will follow each screening, with guest speakers
Our first film, Gently Whispering the Circle Back, is a powerful and
moving exploration of the journey of healing in people wounded by the
residential school system. Special guests will be members of Waycobah
First Nation who will share with us what is being done in their community
to heal from these experiences. We invite you to join us for this evening
and the others to follow.
