CE SILENCE QUI TUE (QUIET KILLING)

preceded by Boys of Nunavut

Programmer's note:

Unrelenting and absolutely necessary. The kind of film that stays with you. First hand accounts of women who endured trauma highlight the perpetrator comes in many different forms. As courageous as they have been to tell us their stories, I dare not call them victims, they are survivors. We owe it to them to listen. Missing Indigenous women should never be ignored.

Synopsis:

Nearly 1200 aboriginal women murdered or missing in Canada: this is what the RCMP stated in a report in 2014. Already at that time, this number was greatly underestimated. Today, the situation is even more alarming. Why is an Aboriginal woman at higher risk than any other Canadian citizen? How can this situation continue in a country like Canada, which is a model for human rights? Sex workers, victims of domestic violence, activists, close to a missing or murdered woman, women and men testify to a troubling reality and cry out from the heart to break the silence that kills.
