MacEwan Library and kihêw waciston, in collaboration with the Centre for Sexual and Gender Diversity and Nursing’s Bear Healing Lodge, welcome ALL to a free screening and discussion of ROSIE.
A feature film debut by Métis writer-director-actor, Gail Maurice, ROSIE tells the story of a young, orphaned, Indigenous girl forced to live with her reluctant, street-smart Aunty Fred (Frédérique). ROSIE is an unconventional love story. A drama with poignant and comedic moments, this film is about the resilience of a child and the beauty of love and acceptance. It’s about alienation, identity, and the revelation that we are all capable of love. It’s a story about fringe dwellers, society’s “throwaways,” struggling to survive against all odds. It’s about finding your chosen family and seeking “treasures” in trash.
Honoured by imagineNATIVE Film and Media Arts Festival, and named by TIFF as a Canada Top Ten pick in 2022, ROSIE is not a film to miss!
Bannock and tea will be served, and a community-guided conversation will follow the screening.
