FILL MY HOLLOW BONES: The Voice of Youth
This documentary is the voice of the youth in a remote aboriginal community, as they use artistic tools to overcome cycles of substance abuse, violence and suicide. Living in isolation in Ontario's far north, they are challenged by limited resources to educate a growing generation who are full of untapped energy and creativity. Youth are challenged in week-long workshops over three years and embrace their heritage through songwriting, storytelling, photography and film arts while building their confidence and skills. The resulting documentary follows them as they re-establish pride in their culture while they look to the future.
