Treatment Centre (2013)

Synopsis: Mamisarvik, or “healing place” in Inuktitut, is one of Canada’s only Inuit-specific centres for the treatment of trauma and addiction, and it’s located in Ottawa, Ontario. Inuit travel there from the high Arctic and other locations to take part in an intensive program of self-confrontation, discovery, and renewal. Filmmaker David Ridgen immerses himself in the eight-week cycle with a cohort of diverse Inuit participants in an attempt to tell at least part of their deeply personal stories.
