Healing at Lac Ste. Anne

Top of page

Every July, over 40,000 Aboriginal people journey to Lac Ste Anne in northern Alberta. It's the largest Native pilgrimage in North America, and it's over a century old. Recent lawsuits over residential school scandals weigh on the Oblate missionaries who own the sacred site. The religious order may go bankrupt and lose the site just when its healing powers are most needed.

This documentary is a campground tapestry of colourful characters and Catholic and Native faith, amidst the hope to heal old wounds.
