On September 18 approximately 180 people gathered for the premiere showing of a 37-minute documentary film made by L.V. Rogers students, with mentorship by local film maker Amy Bohigian. The film, North-South: a Documentary, shares the experiences and insights gained by our local youth as they participated in an exchange with aboriginal youth from Fort McPherson, NWT. Nelson hosted the northern students last February and our students travelled north in April. Following the screening, one adult commented, “It gives you hope to see what these kids have learned and accomplished.” The documentary can be viewed online.
