Movie Info

The Road Forward, a musical documentary by Marie Clements, connects a pivotal moment in Canada's civil rights history-the beginnings of Indian Nationalism in the 1930s-with the powerful momentum of First Nations activism today. The Road Forward's stunningly shot musical sequences, performed by an ensemble of some of Canada's finest vocalists and musicians, seamlessly connect past and present with soaring vocals, blues, rock, and traditional beats. A rousing tribute to the fighters for First Nations rights, a soul-resounding historical experience, and a visceral call to action.

Critic Reviews for The Road Forward

All Critics (4)

The score is strong and the tune "Indian Man" is rousing enough to transcend the film. Unfortunately, The Road Forward as a whole is far from cohesive.

Marie Clements' message is clear: art is a driving force behind reconciliation, in the same way The Native Voice circulated First Nations stories across the province-when all others cast a blind eye.

As a piece of Canadian history, this is already fascinating stuff.

July 19, 2017 | Full Review…

The Road Forward offers an embarrassment of riches regarding the political, cultural, and day-to-day life of Canada's First Nations people, particularly in this region.
