JORDAN RIVER ANDERSON, THE MESSENGER

2019-20 Human Rights Arts Festival
Gordon Vogt Screening Room
Thursday, Jan 23, 2020 at 6:30 PM (ET)


2019 / 65 minutes

Language: English

Director: Alanis Obomsawin



Alanis Obomsawin’s 53rd film documents the story of a young boy who

spent all five years of his life in hospital while the provincial and federal

government argued over who was responsible for paying for the boy’s

care. After facing criticism for the boy’s death, Parliament passed a motion

in support of “Jordan’s Principle,” a policy meant to ensure equal access to

government-funded health, social and educational services, although

living up to the principle took a decade to be fully recognized.
