The first film we are screening is The Spirit of Annie Mae at 7 pm.
**This film has a rating of PG in Nova Scotia and contains sensitive subject matter.**

Annie Mae Pictou Aquash was a 30-year-old Nova Scotia-born Mi’qmaw woman and a prominent figure in the American Indian Movement (AIM) until her life was tragically cut short in 1975, when she was brutally murdered in South Dakota. Decades later, as the crime remains unsolved, her friends and family reflect on her life and what she meant to each of them.

While remaining an intimate portrait of a loving mother and friend, The Spirit of Annie Mae also chronicles the history of AIM (American Indian Movement) and the ways in which the government sought to destroy it from within. 

The second film we are screening is Wildhood at 9 pm.
**This film contains scenes of physical abuse at the beginning.**

This remarkable second feature from Bretten Hannam follows Two-Spirit Mi'kmaw teenager Link (Lewitski) on a remarkable journey of self-discovery set against the gorgeous background of the Annapolis Valley. After finding out that his estranged mother may be alive, Link and his brother (Winters-Anthony) escape from their abusive father and set out to find her, helped along their way by Pasmay (Odjick), a young drifter who helps Link come to terms with his newfound sexuality.
