White Ravens: A Legacy of Resistance

In partnership with DOXA Documentary Film Festival, the Museum of Vancouver presents White Ravens: A Legacy of Resistance.

How do you resist cultural assimilation and maintain a sense of history and tradition in the face of recurring aggression? White Ravens is a critically important lesson about how people can stand together and fight back with power and dignity. Shot entirely on the remote islands of Haida Gwaii, Georg Koszulinski’s film is a touching portrait of the Haida People. Learn about the legacy of resistance and resurgence shared by the Haida People, paired with insights offered by filmmaker Georg Koszulinski.
