Simultaneously a piece of BC First Nations history, The Road Forward is a call for revolution and resolve, and a portrait of a people who have retained their power and identity through community and activism. With an original score, composed by Wayne Lavallee, and featuring a powerhouse ensemble, The Road Forward comes to surging cinematic life from the vision of Marie Clements, and the BC & Yukon Studio of The National Film Board of Canada. With bold blues and rock musical breakdowns led by a cast of Indigenous musicians and performers, the film charts a path of resurgence, honouring the work of ancestors, and passing on the burden of struggle, creating a way towards genuine self-determined reconciliation.

Presented by DOXA Documentary Film Festival and Vancouver Indigenous Media Arts Festival with support from Vancity Credit Union Downtown Community Branch.
