Marie Clements: BONES OF CROWS

A Q&A at TIFF in September regarding Marie’s latest film: “An epic account of the life of Cree matriarch Aline Spears that spans generations, Marie Clements’ Bones of Crows is a powerful indictment of the abuse of Indigenous peoples as well as a stirring story of resilience and resistance.”

Together with Pacific Opera Victoria, we commissioned Marie’s first opera, MISSING. Since premiere in 2017, it has received 22 performances in Vancouver, Victoria, Prince George, and Regina.

In February 2023, MISSING receives its American premiere at Anchorage Opera in Alaska. ‘Bones of Crows’ is a most worthy successor.
