EDMONTON — Indigenous filmmaker Tasha Hubbard is looking forward to the screening of her documentary film nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up on CBC Docs POV and CBC Gem Feb. 23 at 9 p.m. ET.

“Sometimes with films, not everyone is able to get to the theatre and it is a bit of a wait until the films are available online so it’s great to have the film on a national network that people can see,” says Hubbard, director, producer and writer of nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up, associate professor at the University of Alberta and Peepeekisis First Nation citizen in Saskatchewan. “One of the most gratifying comments we receive from juries and reviewers is that this is a film that should be seen by all Canadians. The story of injustice in the Canadian legal system is on-going, but I hope that opening up this particular story beyond the headlines will bring understanding and inspire action.”

Hubbard raises the issue of Colten Boushie’s death from a gunshot to the back of his head after entering a farmer’s property in Saskatchewan in the film, which is a co-production between Downstream Documentary Productions and the National Film Board of Canada. A trailer for the film is posted online.
