The NFB during COVID-19: read the Commissioner's letter.

Jordan River Anderson, The Messenger

Directed by Alanis Obomsawin
Produced by Alanis Obomsawin

In her latest film, celebrated Abenaki director Alanis Obomsawin tells the story of Jordan River Anderson, and how as a result of his short life, thousands of Indigenous children today receive the same standard of social, health and education services as the rest of the Canadian population.

The very timely Jordan River Anderson, The Messenger completes, on an optimistic note, the film cycle devoted to the rights of Indigenous children and peoples that began with The People of the Kattawapiskak River.
