CALL ME HUMAN is the winner of the 2020 CIFF DGC Best Canadian Documentary Award.

When elders leave us, a link to the past vanishes along with them. Innu writer Joséphine Bacon exemplifies a generation that is bearing witness to a time that will soon have passed away. With charm and diplomacy, she fights to prevent the loss of a language, a culture and its traditions.

Director Kim O'Bomsawin's observational documentary accompanies a woman of great spirit who has devoted her life to passing on her knowledge and that of her ancestors. On the trail of Papakassik, the master of the caribou, CALL ME HUMAN is a foray into a people’s multi-millennial history.
