The re:LOCATION documentary series is a collection of compelling, socially relevant stories that need to be told, especially in light of ongoing efforts to re-examine historical events and achieve reconciliation by acknowledging past injustice to Canadians who have been marginalized and arbitrarily uprooted for political and economic reasons.
Each episode will portray a culturally and geographically diverse community from different periods in Canadian history that has been involuntarily and sometimes inhumanely relocated, often with devastating consequences.
Every episode in re:Location is both a story of loss and rebirth as the surviving members of the communities reveal their resilience and devotion to preserving the essential values and the most important legacies of their respective communities and cultures. Their stories of past and present, before and after forced relocation will be brought to life and examined in their historical, cultural, political and economic context by a carefully selected and articulate cast of community members.
re:LOCATION is a Canadian anthology that will, for the first time, showcase the stories of communities from a pan-Canadian perspective for a national audience. The series will honour and celebrate communities that maintain and cherish a profound sense of commitment to their geographic roots, rallying heroically to rebuild and preserve what is uniquely theirs. These are stories of human endurance, adaptability, determination and resilience.
Proudly produced by the Royal Canadian Geographic Society in partnership with Sound Ventures Productions. Series is also available in French.
