Join the Richmond Public Library in a movie series to honour, appreciate and recognize Indigenous Peoples. 

The following movies will be screened and a discussion of the movies will follow:

Between- Living in the hyphen - Thursday September 16, 7pm-9pm

A place between: the story of an adoption - Thursday September 23, 7pm-9pm

Jordan River Anderson, the Messenger - Thursday September 30, 7pm-9pm


Between- Living in the hyphen: This documentary examines what it means to have a background of mixed ancestries that cannot be easily categorized. By focusing on 7 Canadians who have one parent from a European background and one of a visible minority, the movie attempts to get at the root of what it means to be multi-ethnic in a world that wants each person to fit into a single category.


A place between: the story of an adoption: In this movie, a cross-cultural adoptee struggles to find balance between his families' different ethnicities and traditions and discover how and where he fits into each world.


Jordan River Anderson, the Messenger tells the story of how the life of Jordan River Anderson initiated a battle for the right of First Nations and Inuit children to receive the same standard of social, health and educational services as the rest of the Canadian population.
