Tickets are still available to the World Premiere of DAWNLAND at CIFF42!

Cleveland AIM is proud to partner with the 42nd Cleveland Independent Film Festival to bring you the story of Wabanaki people and their journey to truth and healing. While much of the United States remains unaware, the State of Maine has established a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to bring to light the century of stolen children, and begin the healing process; many Wabanki people have never before told their stories of abuse and torment at the hands of the white families in whose homes they were placed by child welfare services. Given new names and forced to act "white" many Wabanaki people never recovered from this mistreatment. DAWNLAND brings you these long 0verdue stories, and highlights the immense challenges faced by everyone as they work toward truth, reconciliation, and healing.
