The story of a remarkable group of Inuit who once lived on a remote island in southeastern James Bay has been forgotten until now. This documentary follows Mini Aodla Freeman as she returns to the island and shares her memories of life there more than fifty years ago and the painful events that ended the Inuit settlement.
A Journey to Remember, directed by Louise Abbott (Runtime: 35 minutes)
Members of an extended Cree family travel to their bush camp for the last time before their traditional hunting and trapping grounds are flooded by Hydro-Québec’s diversion of the Rupert River. It is a journey into their past and a reflection on their future.
