The first screening at Winnipeg’s IMAX theatre is by invitation, said Lisa Barry, Anglican Video senior producer. Because of the level of interest, the second viewing organised by the diocese of Rupert’s Land will take place on Monday May 2nd at 7.30 pm at St. John’s Anglican Cathedral.

Topahdewin: The Gladys Cook Story depicts the life of Gladys Cook, a residential school survivor. Ms Cook, a 74-year-old woman originally from the Sioux Valley Reserve, was sexually abused at the age of 9, while attending residential school, but later rediscovered a faith that acknowledges both Christian and native spirituality. She has used her experiences to help native women, addicts, and survivors of abuse through counselling.
