Documents repented and Canada’s dirty secret – the planned genocide of aboriginal people in church management Indian Residential Schools – and a clergyman’s efforts to document and make public these crimes.
First-hand testimonies from residential school survivors are interwoven with Kevin Annett’s own story of how he dealt with shots, de-frocking, and the loss of his family, reputation and life as a result of their efforts to help survivors and bring out the truth of the residential schools.
The saga continues as Annett continues a David and Goliath struggle for the government and churches in Canada for crimes against humanity, and continued theft of aboriginal lands.
Unrepentant took nineteen months to film, especially in British Columbia and Alberta, and is based on Kevin Annett’s book Hidden from history: The Canadian Holocaust. The whole movie was a self-funded, grassroots effort, reflected in the quality of land and human rights.
