Mitzi Bearclaw turns 25 years old, and that means making big decisions for the future. Her dream to design cool hats is put on hold when she decides to move from the city back to her isolated reserve to look after her sick and bitter mother. With the reserve bully constantly at her heels and an old flame in her sights, she is grateful that her cousin is there to help her in the fight to stay sane in such a hard place to keep positive. With spirit guides and laughs along the way, join Mitzi in her battle to get her family back on the right track!

We are pleased to announce a new partnership with imagineNATIVE Film + Media. Our Partnership will bring a Series of commissioned Films to our Woodsworth Community in the comfort of your own home. Each Film will also offer a Q&A with the filmmakers and imagineNATIVE staff. We will be virtually screening Films bi-weekly on Wednesdays. Please join us as we celebrate Indigenous Film + Media.

imagineNATIVE is the world’s largest presenter of Indigenous screen content. The organization is recognized locally, nationally, and internationally for excellence and innovation in programming and as the global centre for Indigenous media arts. imagineNATIVE (legal entity: The Centre for Aboriginal Media) is a registered charity committed to creating a greater understanding of Indigenous peoples and cultures through the presentation of contemporary Indigenous-made media art including film, video, audio, and digital media.

While this partnership was created through Woodsworth College we welcome participants from the broader community to join us. To get information about upcoming screenings complete our registration form.
