Runs Through Their Blood: A Life Impacted is a story about the intergenerational effects of the residential school system. Inspired by the first 215 children that were found in Kelowna, BC, the film documents how Indigenous people are still impacted by what was left behind after their years in residential schools. This film has been made to educate the world through these untold stories and the history from the perspective of the people it affected. We have collected interviews with Indigenous people that have been disconnected over the years from the trauma of the residential school systems even after they were all shut down. The film documents how these effects are a part of the everyday lives of the community and how it is moving forward towards change.
