The movie night featured the attendance of Alberta’s Dallas Arcand, three-time World Champion hoop dancer, as well as Johnny Issaluk, an actor in the film.
“The event was important because of the importance of the movie and the subject matter,” said Northern Store manager Ian Wray.
The screening was held at Wasaho Cree Nation School, where Northern provided food and drinks for attendees.
