Guitar Lessons will be preceded by First Stories – His Guidance (Okiskinotahewewin) from Director Duane Lackline.
This short film tells the story of Rocky Morin, a drummer who first felt the pull of the drum almost 15 years ago and hasn’t looked back since. It’s a powerful reminder of the need to maintain a strong connection to one’s roots.
First Stories is an emerging filmmaker program for Indigenous youth which produced 3 separate collections of short films from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. Produced in association with CBC, APTN, SCN, SaskFilm and MANITOBA FILM & SOUND.
