Bones of Crows

An emotionally powerful work, Bones of Crows offers the light of hope while showing how Canada’s past still darkens the present.

BONES OF CROWS is told through the eyes of Cree Matriarch Aline Spears as she survives a childhood in Canada's residential school system to continue her family's generational fight in the face of systemic starvation, racism, and sexual abuse. She uses her uncanny ability to understand and translate codes into working for a special division of the Canadian Air Force as a Cree code talker in World War II. The story unfolds over 100 years with a cumulative force that propels us into the future.

"As a Métis-Dene storyteller, Marie Clements ensures that Bones of Crows has an Indigenous voice behind the camera (and pen)." - Mediaversity Reviews

"Surrounded by devastatingly beautiful imagery and transcendent cinematography is the horror of Canada’s past. Marie Clements takes on a difficult subject with both forcefulness and delicacy. It’s an inspiring ode to Indigenous strength." - Pay or Wait

"Following one central Cree family over multiple generations, the movie is filled not only with outrage but also triumph, since our protagonists rise above their long torture to stand tall. It’s a hard-fought victory, with many casualties." - Hammer to Nail
