RPL Film Theatre is honoured to present this showcase of work by filmmaker and community producer Marjorie Beaucage (Métis). Curated by Lisa Myers originally for imagineNATIVE in 2018, these three programs celebrate the groundbreaking work of this significant media artist, activist, and leader. Her work reminds us of a vital part of our history and is a powerful statement that her voice and vision remain as strong and relevant today, as it will for the future.
