Movie premiere: Bones of Crows

Join Indigenous Education for the TRU premiere of Bones of Crows (2022), written and directed by Marie Clements.

Bones of Crows is a psychological drama told through the eyes of Cree Matriarch Aline Spears, as she survives Canada’s residential school system to continue her family’s generational fight in the face of systemic starvation, racism and sexual abuse. Bones of Crows unfolds over one hundred years with a cumulative force that propels us into the future.
