Synopsis

Celebrated director Alanis Obomsawin tells the story of Jordan River Anderson, and how as a result of his short life, thousands of Indigenous children today have equal access to health care. Jordan’s Principle was passed into law, yet many Indigenous patients still face a denial of services. It took sustained commitment for justice to be done. The very timely Jordan River Anderson, The Messenger completes the film cycle on the rights of Indigenous children and peoples that began with The People of the Kattawapiskak River.
