|Protest the Pope film season - UNREPENTANT - Wednesday 15 September, 7.30pm
From: 15 September 2010 To: 16 September 2010
Location: Conway Hall, Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL UNITED KINGDOM
Description: Wednesday 15 September, 7.30pm
This multi-award winning documentary at last tells the truth about the almost unbelievable abuse and murder that took place in the Church-run Indian Residential Schools in Canada. It also explores Rev Kevin Annett’s efforts to document and make public these crimes - and the efforts of the church to stop him.
First-hand testimonies from residential school survivors are interwoven with Annett’s own story of how he faced firing, “de-frocking”, and the loss of his family, reputation and livelihood as a result of his efforts to help survivors and bring out the truth of the residential schools.
This saga goes on, as Annett continues his struggle to hold the government and churches of Canada accountable for crimes against humanity.
Unrepentant took nineteen months to film, primarily in British Columbia and Alberta, and is based on Kevin Annett’s book Hidden from History: The Canadian Holocaust. The entire film was a self-funded, grassroots effort, which is reflected in its earthy and human quality. Kevin Annett will be present at the screening to introduce the film and answer questions.
