Women Take The Reel Film Festival returns for its thirteenth year in March for Women's History Month. WTTR celebrates and honors the contributions women make to film, uplifts voices who explore the intersections of power and identity, and promotes feminist thought and action.

Film Description: Renowned Inuit lawyer Aaju Peter has led a lifelong fight for the rights of her people. But while launching an effort to establish an Indigenous forum at the European Union, Aaju finds herself facing a difficult, personal journey to mend her own wounds after the unexpected passing of her son. In this “powerful exploration of cultural trauma” (The Film Stage), director Lin Alluna follows alongside Aaju Peter as she strives to reclaim her language and identity after a lifetime of whitewashing and forced assimilation.
