We are very glad that Ezra Winton of Cinema Politica from Canada selected this film 'uprooted generation' for us. The reason why he selected this film for our page 'Politics and Poetry' is very clear: The film is part poem and part documentary, dedicated to the victims of residential schools. The film includes reflections on cultural disconnection, personal and community trauma, resilience, and the healing power of art.
