Protect the mental health of film teams

Rose travelled with the Makwa Creative film team to Thunder Bay for a shoot on a documentary about the families of the Seven Fallen Feathers. It’s important to film with sensitivity and with a trauma-informed lens. Daily debriefs for the film team gave them the opportunity to process their response to witnessing the grief of First Nations families who are still struggling with the loss of children, and the current risk of kids living in the town of Thunder Bay.
