"Indigenous filmmakers are really starting to find their voice now. They have a very unique perspective; not just on this subject matter but also on the way we look at Canada and I think that that’s something that is really fascinating to people outside of the Indigenous community, but I think it’s also is really important for our young people. It allows us to see ourselves reflected and our culture represented."
