This short doc honours the life of Audrey Anderson, while revealing the injustices of a flawed judicial system. 

For forty-seven years, Audrey’s family wondered about the circumstances of her death and the rigour of the investigation by Ontario Provincial Police and Chief Coroner - who had deemed that her death in 1972 was ‘accidental’. With the help of the Family Information Liaison Unit, Audrey’s family managed to have the investigation reopened and the cause of Audrey’s death reclassified to ‘undetermined’. Set in Sioux Lookout, Ontario, this important film is an expression of compassion and accountability in a nation-wide crisis, with many key voices working together to obtain the truth and respond appropriately.

This film is dedicated to Audrey Anderson, and to all families with murdered and missing loved ones. 

This special event will open with a prayer by KDFN Elder Diane Smith. The screening will be followed by a women’s warrior song by the Rising Sun Singers and a presentation by Joy O’Brien, MMIWG Outreach Coordinator at Yukon Aboriginal Women’s Council, along with Stephanie Sullivan, Manager of the Yukon Family Information Liaison Unit.

Mature content. Presented in partnership with Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre.
