My Legacy (Canada, 2014, 60 min.)
Struggling with the ability to sustain a lasting relationship, Helen Haig-Brown questions where this lack of skill and inability to commit comes from.  My Legacy explores the often tenuous relationship between a mother and daughter made more complex by the legacy of residential school. Through understanding her mothers experience of trauma and disconnection, which shaped her approach to motherhood, Helen finds forgiveness and healing when confronting her own childhood with her mother. Despite the various hardships experienced by the women in her family, Helens story is ultimately one of love and forgiveness as she highlights the strength and beauty that has defined her family. Directed by Helen Haig-Brown.

Discussion with filmmaker Helen Haig-Brown (Tsilhqotin) follows screening.
