The oral tradition popularised by Canada's First Nations community is brought to the screen in Ahnahktsipiitaa's astonishing new cinematic VR experience. A community that has traditionally been silenced is allowed to let loose in an interactive film that brings all viewers closer to understanding the struggles that they have faced in decades past. A particular emphasis is placed upon the elements of their culture that colonialism attempted to eradicate. Rather than being a frivolous trifle, this film encourages audiences to bear witness to these events and understand the full force of the trauma that they have to work through.
