Legacy: the residential schools
Raunchy... Upbeat ... Reaching a youth audience...
NATIVE YOUNG! is a documentary told thru the eyes of a native Punk Rock Band. It explores the lingering and damaging effects that residential schools still have on generations of First Nation communities, challenges difficult and confusing Canadian political views, and highlights other challenges faced by many native people in Canada.
The band's members grew up, work, and live on reserves. Their music -- unapologetic and ferocious -- provides a dramatic musical landscape for the film.
NATIVE YOUNG! is the first in a series of films that provide First Nations youth an unfiltered lens to share their stories. It is distributed by FIRST NATIONS FILMS.
