NFB says
The Road Forward is a musical documentary like no other. It bends and pushes the boundaries of what we expect of Indigenous cinema, the music video genre and Western documentary traditions. In a unique and defiant blend, the film tells the story of six generations of Indigenous activism through song and story. While the music of well-known Indigenous musicians like Michelle St. John are featured front and centre, the film also incorporates the history of Canada’s first Indigenous newspaper, The Native Voice, the history of the Native Brotherhood of British Columbia, and the Constitution Express. What emerges is a confirmation that the past, present and future of music, story and activism inform each other in a continuous cycle. Aisha Jamal
