'Reconciliation':
Reserve 107. This powerful film centres on the true story of what happens when a group of Mennonites and Lutherans in the town of Laird SK discover that the land on which they live is in fact the former reserve of the Young Chippewayan First Nation.  Through storytelling, we hear about an unique movement in history, where relationships are formed.
