Two Worlds Colliding

Two Worlds Colliding

| 49 min

This documentary is an inquiry into what came to be known as Saskatoon's infamous "freezing deaths," and the schism between a fearful, mistrustful Indigenous community and a police force harbouring a harrowing secret.

One frigid night in January 2000 Darrell Night, an Indigenous man was dumped by two police officers in -20° C temperatures in a barren field on the city outskirts. He survives the ordeal but is stunned to hear that the frozen body of another Indigenous man was discovered in the same area. Days later, another victim, also Native, is found. When Night comes forward with his story, he sets into motion a chain of events: a major RCMP investigation into several suspicious deaths, the conviction of the two constables who abandoned him and the reopening of an old case, leading to a judicial inquiry.

    the government has taken their land, their resources and their lives...without any attempt in understanding or respecting the valuable culture of indigenous people. the government treated (treats) indigenous people without respect yesterday and wonder mainstream society remains rampant with racism. it's time for this to end.

    I desperately wished to hear the words spoken by the principles in this film but because of the overlay of background audio, could barely distinguish the words. This account is so important...heartbreaking, infuriating, depressing, and still pertinent to so many locations in not just Canada but this globe. What First Nations and First People on this continent have endured because of their heritage and cultures is descriptive of the basic flaws in humans as they now exist. Were I a audio-video guru, I would try to remix this myself so I could hear it more clearly.
