COLONIALISM AND IMPACT.
Marie Clements takes her acclaimed film Bones of Crows to series to expand on the story of an Indigenous woman’s struggles following a childhood of heartbreak and abuse. She was forcibly and legally removed from her childhood home and placed in an abusive residential school. We follow Aline, played by Grace Dove, over her lifetime and find that even as she is haunted by those scarring events, she lives a successful life. Aline’s story is an inspiration, a cautionary tale, and an example of the harm done to Indigenous people in colonial Canada’s residential schools and beyond. What She Said’ Anne Brodie spoke with Clements.
Bones of Crows, the series is on the CBC and CBC Gem and APTN and to stream on APTN lumi
