riviere métissée bannière

For International Francophonie Day, the Canadian Cultural Centre is pleased to present a moving documentary by Acadian filmmaker Julien Cadieux. Une rivière métissée illustrates one woman’s struggle for restorative justice.

Paryse Suddith is of Cherokee, African-American and Acadian descent. After having devoted her time to Indigenous law on the national and international stage, she returns home to New Brunswick looking to heal herself. While undertaking a non-traditional holistic approach to healing, she begins to explore her roots.

In this deeply moving documentary, Acadian filmmaker Julien Cadieux takes us on the extraordinary and inspiring journey of Paryse Suddith and her desire to bring together the cultural communities that shape her identity, all three of which have experienced deep collective trauma.
