This powerful documentary profiles young native adoptee and Kwakwakawakw artist, John Walkus. The film will have its Canadian Television Premiere in May. It has also recently been invited to have its Theatrical World Premiere at the prestigious Taos Talking Pictures Festival in New Mexico in mid-April.
Directed by Vancouver filmmakers Maureen
Kelleher and Annie Fraziér Henry, To Return: The John Walkus
Story reveals the commitment and strength of a young man's struggle
to belong, as he tries to return to the village he was forcefully
taken away from as a child. Supported through the strong voices of other
young adoptees, and the advocates who fight for them, John's story becomes
a remarkable journey - as he 'carves' his way home.
