We Can't Make the Same Mistake Twice

Rated To Be Announced ~ Runs 163 minutes

Dir.: Alanis Obomsawin, Canada, 2016
In English with French subtitles.


To mark the release of Alanis Obomsawin’s 50th film, Our People Will Be Healed, L’Ipéen and the Charlottetown Film Society, in collaboration with the NFB and the City of Charlottetown, have organized a retrospective of six of her films. Free admission (donations accepted at the door)

In this documentary, distinguished filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin focuses her lens on the landmark discrimination case filed by the Assembly of First Nations and the Child and Family Caring Society of Canada against Indian Affairs and Northern Development Canada in 2007. Obomsawin exposes injustices to the community by showing how the child and welfare services provided to them are vastly inferior to the services available to other Canadian children, while giving voice to the childcare workers at the heart of the battle.
