We Can’t Make the Same Mistake Twice (2016 | 2 h 43 min), by Alanis Obomsawin

In this documentary, distinguished filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin focuses her lens on the landmark discrimination case filed by the Assembly of First Nations and the Child and Family Caring Society of Canada against Indian Affairs and Northern Development Canada in 2007. Obomsawin exposes injustices to the community by showing how the child and welfare services provided to them are vastly inferior to the services available to other Canadian children, while giving voice to the childcare workers at the heart of the battle.

Bioethics Week Movie. A panel for Q&A from our Family Legal Health team lawyer, a physician, and an Indigenous former patient will follow the screening.
