NFB Film Club Night – The Road Forward

10A_DSC_0780

Thursday, November 23, 7:00 (101 min.)

The Road Forward, a musical documentary by Marie Clements, connects a pivotal moment in Canada’s civil rights history—the beginnings of Indian Nationalism in the 1930s—with the powerful momentum of First Nations activism today. The Road Forward’s stunningly shot musical sequences, performed by an ensemble of some of Canada’s finest vocalists and musicians, seamlessly connect past and present with soaring vocals, blues, rock, and traditional beats. A rousing tribute to the fighters for First Nations rights, a soul-resounding historical experience, and a visceral call to action.

JMCPL is pleased to announce we are offering a new database to our patrons!

This online collection captures the lives of people living on the edge of European settlement across the various frontiers of North America, Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Through a huge array of digitized primary source materials it documents the creation of new states, trade networks, and movements of people in these regions alongside the marginalization and decline of indigenous peoples. Material ranges across four centuries, from the seventeenth to the early twentieth century.

Frontier Life brings together documents from sixteen archives and libraries around the world. This geographical spread of material allows users to take a  comparative approach or focus on a particular region, making it ideal for teaching and student projects, as well as more in-depth scholarly research.
