This is a truth-telling and moving story of a First Nations man, Everett Soop, living with a disability and being an authentically Indigenous man in the late 80’s and early 90’s. His work as a cartoonist, journalist, and activist has since been widely recognized. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion.
