PUBLIC SHOWING on Sunday April 14 @ 10:00 AM – Dual screening with I Won’t Stand for It
High School screening on Friday April 12 – registration here
A thought-provoking blend of documentary, animation, and elements of poetry. Through her eloquent and powerful words, Mi’kmaw poet and former poet laureate of Kjipuktuk (Halifax) Rebecca Thomas shines a light on the enduring effects of colonization and the struggles that Indigenous people continue to face in contemporary Canadian society. Three Indigenous illustrators lend their talents to animated segments that visually represent Rebecca’s words. Igniting the authenticity of Rebecca’s personal narrative through the power of her poetry, I Place You Into The Fire is an invitation to consider how we can foster deeper understanding, compassion and justice in everything we do.
