Truly and Humbly: Memories of the First Apology

In Sudbury, 1986, the United Church of Canada made an apology to Indigenous people. It was the first of its kind by any institution.

This film traces the memories of various participants of the apology, including Alberta Billy who requested the Church to apologize, and Right Rev. Bob Smith who led the Council to vote. With many humorous moments, tears, and deep thoughts, this film orchestrates a meditation upon the meaning of apology and the call for action thereafter.
