Creative Choices and Resources Ltd., which works with individuals 18 to 24 who are experiencing barriers to education or employment, is sponsoring the Edmonton premiere of Indian Horse tonight, a film developed from the novel of the same name by the late Richard Wagamese.
And the director of the movie, Stephen S. Campanelli, is going to be in attendance, providing a question and answer session after the movie screens at Landmark Theatres in City Centre tonight at 6 p.m.
The memory of Wagamese, who passed away last March, will also be celebrated.
Indian Horse is, on its surface, a hockey movie, but it’s based in a residential school and demonstrates how a young man develops himself through hockey.
“It’s a really impactful movie,” said Shauna Simpson, owner of Creative Choices. It shows how resilient Indigenous people are, and how capable they are of moving forward and living full, healthy lives.
Clint Eastwood is executive producer of the film.
Tickets are $15.
