A new documentary is in the works to highlight and bring attention to the missing and murdered indigenous women of First Nations Canada.

With over 4,000 cases, Saldana feels that a film like this deserves as much attention as we can get.

“If this exact same story were being told in a country in Africa, I think we would be paying attention to it and we would be donating money to it,” said Leslie Owen, the American producer-director behind Gone Missing. “But because it’s in Canada, a first world nation, we don’t want to see it in our own backyard.”
