The Wisdom Centre is proud to host a screening of the feature film, Elder in the Making, Friday, November 4 at 7:30 pm at St. Laurence Anglican Church.  Tickets are $10 at the door.

A brief synopsis:

Two young urban dwellers, one a Blackfoot aboriginal named Cowboy and the other a Chinese Canadian newcomer named Chris, embark on a spiritual journey across traditional Blackfoot territory.  Through thousands of years of ancient history guided by the wisdom of modern day elders, they find the beginnings of the long road to reconciliation between indigenous and non-indigenous people.

Elder in the Making is a feature documentary inviting all residents of North America to explore the tragic and hopeful history of their home.  Through the journey of two unlikely travel companions, this film uncovers our responsibility as stewards of the land and of the generations yet to come.

The Director of the film will be in attendance to answer questions.  The screening will be followed by a wine and cheese reception.  You can find a trailer for the film here.
