 The evening began with dinner and a screening of “Our Place, Our Children”, a short documentary that follows Caprice, an indigenous youth who suffered a critical crisis in 2012, and the important family figures who supported her through her recovery process.
This film is a collaboration between Caprice and Melanie Rita Lecoy (ALIVE board member), Aboriginal Life in Vancouver Enhancement Society(ALIVE), Our Place, Raycam Community Centre, and Salish Sea Productions. It was well-received by all ALIVE members.
