Description

Join photographer Joel Clements for the screening and discussion of his documentary The Weight of Your Heart: A Walk with Chanie Wenjack. Chanie Wenjack was a young Anishinaabe boy who died on October 22, 1966, walking the railroad tracks while trying to escape from a residential school. In 2016, Gord Downie inspired the Walk for Wenjack that retraced the final steps of Chanie. Joel was there to document the walk.

Joel Clements is a fine art and documentary photographer and teaches photography at the Durham College and Varley Art Gallery. His documentary projects have focussed on illuminating the lives of marginalized groups in North, Central and South America.
