Learning and Knowledge Exchanges
This documentary profiles the Ojibway community of Hollow Water on the shores of Lake Winnipeg as they deal with an epidemic of sexual abuse in their midst. The Manitoba justice system was unsuccessful in ending the cycle of abuse, so the community brought the offenders home to face justice in a community healing and sentencing circle. Based on traditional practices, this unique model of justice reunites families and heals both victims and offenders.
