L'il'wata

DVD - 2010
Rate this:
This film was born of an encounter that took place in the early 1970s between an Interior Salish community in British Columbia and Alanis Obomsawin, a visionary activist at the outset of her remarkable career in cinema. Challenging official historical accounts that denied Aboriginal people their own voice, Obomsawin invited the members of the L'il'wat First Nation to tell their own stories. The result is this fresh and multi-faceted portrait of a culture - with first-person accounts of residential school life, ancestral puberty rites, and traditional economic practises.
