Join us at the Rio Theatre for a special screening of the powerful musical documentary The Road Forward

"The Road Forward, a musical documentary by Marie Clements, connects a pivotal moment in Canada’s civil rights history—the beginnings of Indian Nationalism in the 1930s—with the powerful momentum of First Nations activism today. The Road Forward’s stunningly shot musical sequences, performed by an ensemble of some of Canada’s finest vocalists and musicians, seamlessly connect past and present with soaring vocals, blues, rock, and traditional beats. A rousing tribute to the fighters for First Nations rights, a soul-resounding historical experience, and a visceral call to action." - National Film Board

The screening is a fundraiser for the Wishing Tree Free Store, a resource for the families of Queen Alexandra Elementary School which is funded exclusively by the Vancouver and District Labour Council in solidarity with our local community. 

In order to reach our fundraising goals for 2019 we hope to sell-out the theatre for this important event. Tickets are $20. This ticket price covers your admission, our costs for showing the film, and a donation to the Wishing Tree.

Stay tuned for information on exciting door prizes!
