About the Screening
The series, produced by Winnipeg-based Animiki See Digital Productions, Nüman Films, and Indios Productions, takes six Canadians, all with strong opinions about Indigenous people, on a unique and compelling 28-day exploration of Indigenous Canada. It is a journey that will turn their lives upside down, challenge their perceptions, and confront their prejudices about a world they never imagined they would see. This exploration will change the participants’ lives forever, and will undoubtedly add to the national conversation on Indigenous issues and reconciliation.
