#FIRSTLOOK: HOLLYWOOD SUITE PRESENT 2022 NATIONAL DAY FOR TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION PROGRAMMING
On September 30, 2022, Hollywood Suite will present a full day of programming from Indigenous creators in recognition and support of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Spotlighting the culture, history and perspectives of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples, the programming will air on Hollywood Suite’s HS00 channel.
As well, Hollywood Suite is honoured to be the home of the broadcast premiere of the feature-length documentary The Long Ride Home on September 30 at 9pm ET on HS00. The documentary tells the story of a courageous group of Indigenous riders, led by Neil Sioux, who embark on a series of two-week-long horseback journeys across many traditional territories to bring awareness to the realities of our colonial past, end the over-representation of Indigenous children in care, and find a shared path forward.
The full National Day for Truth and Reconciliation programming lineup also includes work from Indigenous creators, such as Jeremy Torrie’s thriller The Corruption of Divine Providence (2020); the box office success Indian Horse (2017); Darlene Naponse’s Falls Around Her (2018) starring Tantoo Cardinal; Every Child Matters: Reconciliation Through Education (2020); Stephanie Joline’s Stream Me (2021); the romance Great Great Great (2017); Abandoned: Angelique’s Isle (2018); and the supernatural drama from Shirley Cheechoo, Bearwalker (2001).
The new TV special Remembering The Children: National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, honours residential school survivors, their families, their communities and all the children who never made it home and will air at 8pm ET on HS00.
