Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms gets six fresh perspectives with In the Name of All Canadians, a compilation of short documentaries commissioned by Hot Docs. From Indigenous rights to the controversial ‘notwithstanding clause,’ participating filmmakers take the Charter’s key tenets off the page and into the lived experiences of the country we call home. Includes Last Resort by local filmmaker Vivian Belik, a short documentary focusing on the Ktunaxa Nation’s struggle to protect the sacred region of Jumbo Mountain in BC from the development of a ski resort.
