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.
