The Road Forward

Director: Marie Clements Year: 2017 Run Time: 101min

A musical doc unlike anything you’ve seen before, The Road Forward pushes the boundaries of what we expect of documentaries and offers a unique, defiant blend of genres that will leave you smiling and feeling inspired.

The film tells the tale of six generations of Indigenous activism, weaving in musical sequences that seamlessly connect past and present with blues, rock and traditional beats. A rousing tribute to those who tirelessly fight for the rights of First Nations people and a visceral and inspiring call to action!

“The Road Forward represents the bold and optimistic position where [Indigenous documentary] now stands.” Kate Taylor, The Globe and Mail
