Self-Expression through Film

Reality on the reserve is difficult to talk about directly, but after just one week of film training, aboriginals on the Eden Valley Reserve produced a fictional story with enormous heart, truth, and hope. Keep in mind that prior to this, no one had used a camera, boom mic, or acted before. The story, I discovered later, was authentic.

Hidden Story Productions provided the equipment, training, editing, and direction. This workshop was held as part of the employment training program run by the Affinities Group.
