For Love Documentary

Watch CSFS' documentary, For Love, in honour of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30. It is available to stream on Netflix Canada or Prime in the U.S.

For Love seeks to illuminate the link between the residential school system and the over-representation of Indigenous children in the child welfare system. More importantly, it reveals how Indigenous Nations are revitalizing culture to strengthen children, families, and Nations.

The film is narrated by singer Shania Twain and directed by artist and filmmaker Matt Smiley and produced by Mary Teegee. The film was co-written by Teegee and Smiley.
