SCREENING: Keepers for the Old People

A short video by Michael Roderick Keshane.


Thursday, 15 December 2016, 7 PM

Opening remarks by the artist, followed by a Q+A after the video (22 minutes). There will be food to feast on and refreshments will be available.

Keepers For The Old People is a different type of documentary. It follows the artist as he journeys with elders and recalls the teachings from his youth, all while he struggles to cope with the loss of his grandparents. Based on a true story of family loss, Keshane’s journey is told by revisiting the past and looking between the lines of what it means to have grown up in the north-central Regina, and what it means to carry history forward as a keeper of stories, faith, pain and healing.
