Reel Justice Film Festival:


The Reel Justice Film Festival presents: Doctrine of Discovery, Stolen Lands, Strong Hearts, a challenging, truthful documentary, meant to educate people about the historic policy, which established a religious, political, and legal justification for colonization and seizure of land not inhabited by Christians. The film intends to create an awareness of the legacy of the Doctrine and the impact on the current state of Indigenous affairs on Turtle Island or North America. Understanding the Doctrine of Discovery and its manifestations are important as we strive for reconciliation. The screening will be hosted online. Run time: 66 minutes
