Movie Info

On August 9, 2016, a young Cree man named Colten Boushie died from a gunshot to the back of his head after entering Gerald Stanley's rural property with his friends. The jury's subsequent acquittal of Stanley captured international attention, raising questions about racism embedded within Canada's legal system and propelling Colten's family to national and international stages in their pursuit of justice. Sensitively directed by Tasha Hubbard, nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up weaves a profound narrative encompassing the filmmaker's own adoption, the stark history of colonialism on the Prairies, and a vision of a future where Indigenous children can live safely on their homelands.

  • [A] powerful work of activist cinema.

    May 30, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Inevitably, some people would complain that the trial was unreasonably politicised... They will say the same about this film, but [Tasha] Hubbard makes a strong case for a political view being appropriate.

    February 24, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • I am hesitant to give a 10 out of 10 for any film, but nîpawistamâsowin: We Will Stand Up is an emotional award-winning film that is more than deserving. The tragic story of the Native young man Colten Boushie, shot and killed by a white farmer.

    September 12, 2019 | Rating: 10/10 | Full Review…
  • By weaving in a personal story, Hubbard elevates this documentary from a summary of the case to a poignant exploration of how to maintain Indigenous identity in a settler society.

    June 4, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This is an extremely powerful and important film that has taken on a life of its own.

    May 31, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Using Boushie's murder as a jumping off point, Hubbard's film opens a greater conversation about how the roots of racism are dug deep into the soil of Canadian history.
