The film Birth of a Family shares a familiar story for many Indigenous Canadians who underwent separation from their families during the infamous sixties scoop. This film shares the story of three sisters and one brother who reunite for the first time after decades of being separated. Through their story, we learn of the racial prejudices held against the 20, 0000 Indigenous children who were placed in non-Indigenous homes between 1955 and 1985. In efforts to reconnect to their Indigenous culture and with each other, the story of these four siblings is a heartwarming and moving experience for its audience.
