Thank you for your stories, Gil Cardinal.

Gil Cardinal is a Métis filmmaker who passed away recently. He grew up in foster care, in a non-Indigenous family, and devoted a lot of his adult life to learning about his biological family and his Métis background. I recommend all his films, but you might want to start with Foster Child, an honest and unabashedly emotional account of Cardinal’s search to connect with his family. Watch it for free on the NFB website.
