Two Roads – Short Film About Indigenous Resilience and Strength

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown June 14th, 2015 Last Updated on: June 14th, 2015

Troy Moth is a Canadian photographer who has worked with big profile clients such as Vogue, GQ, Rolling Stone and more. He recently joined up with Josh Lambert to create a visually stunning short film that is currently in the My RØDE Reel 2015 film festival.

This is a story of resilience, of finding strength in your roots.

These are the words of Cloud Moving Away, elder among the Anishinaabe people, who have survived generations of genocide and abuse by the Canadian government. Through a childhood of state-sponsored indoctrination, fear, and shame, this man rediscovered the strength of his ancestors. He now teaches others – both Anishinaabe and otherwise – to find themselves by walking the old road and the new.

See if you're not inspired by his words:
