A new feature-length film is currently in the works featuring Opaskwayak Cree Nation (OCN) Elder Wilfred Buck, and will be in The Pas filming drama re-enactments set in the 1960s and 1970s in a couple of weeks. The hybrid documentary, titled Wilfred Buck, weaves together his challenging past and his present life with star knowledge stories and explores colonization’s impact on Indigenous ways of knowing, such as land-based teachings.
“I first heard about Wilfred Buck in 2017 at an Indigenous star knowledge conference at the University of Toronto,” said Door Number 3 Productions’ writer and director Lisa Jackson.
