What’s On (Calgary): The Ministry of Grace – Making Treaty 8

A grand, sweeping story of friendship and redemption.

It’s 1950 in the deserts of Southern California. Evangelist Brother Cain has a booming trade; his tent revival show moves from town to town, fleecing crowds desperate for something to believe in. When he discovers Mary, a Ntlaka’pamux woman from the Nicola Valley, reading the bible, he puts her onstage, renames her Grace, and displays her as a miracle: an Indian who can read.

Written and directed by Tara Beagan.
