The Rotary Club of Guelph presents a free screening of Bones Of Crows.

Based on true events, Bones of Crows is a beautifully crafted epic story of resilience told through the eyes of Cree matriarch Aline Spears. As a young child, Aline and her siblings are taken from their home in Manitoba and forced into Canada’s residential school system. A Canadian drama film, Bones of Crows is directed by Marie Clements and stars Grace Dove, whose character survives the Indian residential school system to become a code talker for the Canada Air Force during the Second World War. Though haunted by painful memories, Aline begins to heal as she confronts her abusers and speaks her truth.
