Event Description

Finding Dawn

Canada 2006. Dir: Christine Welsh. 73 min. DCP

This 2006 NFB documentary by Métis filmmaker and University of Victoria professor Christine Welsh remains very much a film of the moment, as Canada’s national conversation around missing and murdered Aboriginal women continues to be front and centre. Putting a human face to this monumental tragedy, the film tells the story of three women: Dawn Crey, a member of the Sto:lo Nation who disappeared from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside; Ramona Wilson, who went missing on B.C.’s Highway 16, the notorious Highway of Tears; and Daleen Kay Bosse, who disappeared in director Welsh’s home province of Saskatchewan. A compelling work by a deeply-caring, activist filmmaker, Finding Dawn also finds reason to hope, in the efforts of advocates and organizers working to raise awareness, demand change, promote healing, and build closer communities.

Introduced by Mo Simpson, Vancouver-based documentary filmmaker and Finding Dawn director of photography.
