Abducted - Film Screening
Abducted has its genesis from a serial murderer who has been hunting at-risk women in the Edmonton area for decades.
One of the goals of the film is to raise awareness of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.
A brief question and answer discussion with Writer and Director Daniel Foreman and Producer Sharlene Millang will follow the screening, as well as a post wrap-celebration.
An inner-city teenage boy’s life is turned upside-down when his drug-running sister goes missing. Lakota’s sudden disappearance leaves Derrick to piece together the clues of her abduction. Derrick experiences visions which he struggles to understand but which help him on his quest to find her. As he gets close to finding his sister, Derrick ends up in the fight of his life.
This film has its genesis from a serial murderer who has been hunting at-risk women in the Edmonton area for decades. The police have a character sketch but have been unable to track down the suspect. This resonates with me as literally thousands of Indigenous females have disappeared across Canada with very few convictions.
Growing up in a Northern Canadian prairie city, I have seen the gritty underbelly of urban life with addiction , homelessness, prostitution and gang violence. Years working and volunteering in the inner city have led to seeing ingrained patterns and the difficulty in breaking them.
One of my goals with this movie is to raise awareness of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls and to do it in a way that captivates the audience.
