Freedom Road is a five-part documentary series that tells the inspiring story of Shoal Lake 40 Anishinaabe First Nation and their battle to build a road after their community was forcibly relocated and cut off from the mainland over 100 years ago, so that water could be diverted to the City of Winnipeg. Director and Shoal Lake 40 member Angelina McLeod uses an innovative, community-driven approach to storytelling that highlights the community’s dignity, strength and perseverance as they take back control of their narrative and their future in the process of building Freedom Road.
