Tribal Justice, with Filmmaker Anne Makepeace

Glenbow is pleased to welcome back award winning filmmaker Anne Makepeace for the Western Canadian premier of Tribal Justice. The film focuses on the efforts of two indigenous judges Abby Abinanti and Claudette White, who use traditional concepts of justice to reduce incarceration rates, foster greater safety in their communities, and create a positive environment for youth. These models of restorative justice are proving effective in addressing the root causes of crime, and courts across America are taking notice. Following the film there will be a conversation and Q&A with Anne Makepeace.

Examining how oil and natural gas have fueled human ingenuity, progress, warfare, disaster, prosperity and commerce across the globe, The Black Gold Tapestry highlights fascinating vignettes from the past and the present that will surprise and even delight viewers of this truly epic project.
