Unloved: Huronia’s Forgotten Children
May 4 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am PDT
SESSION INFO: « Back to all events
Filmmaker Barri Cohen knew her immediate family to consist of her parents, two brothers and half-sister. But one day, her father revealed the existence of two more siblings, who were dropped off as toddlers at a now-closed hospital and home for children with developmental disabilities.
In the wake of a successful class-action lawsuit, Cohen is finally able “to peel back the half-truths and secrets” around her two now-deceased siblings. Speaking to the families and survivors of the Centre, she pieces together the story of her brothers’ lives through shocking stories of abuse, humiliation and trauma. But these interviews also provide hope and light, as the survivors support each other in their battle for recognition and healing.
Online streaming is available for five days starting on May 4 at 9:00am. Single tickets are on sale now!
