Congrats to Jenna (JJ) Neepin (NSI IndigiDocs) and Justina Neepin (CBC New Indigenous Voices, NSI IndigiDocs) on the screening of their short film Bayline tomorrow, May 18, at the Winnipeg Film Group’s Cinematheque alongside New and Used: Winnipeg. The screening starts at 7 p.m.

In the film, Jenna and Justina’s parents take them to the Bayline, where their father grew up, for a three-day long camping trip. The Bayline was a short term for the Hudson Bay Railway between The Pas and Churchill in Manitoba.

Jenna also wrote a blog post for CBC Short Docs about her and Justina’s film Headdress which premiered at Hot Docs last month. She details the motivation behind the film and the process of making it.
