Chalifoux

I am the writer and producer for this very special film, River Of Silence. I hope to bring worldwide awareness to the issue of murdered and missing Indigenous women and violence against all women. I not only want to raise awareness but I hope to inspire a call to action as this is a serious issue that has been going on for years with hundreds of missing and murdered people. River Of Silence moves into production in the spring of 2016. I am a Cree filmmaker from Northern Alberta. I have chosen to be a filmmaker because it is a powerful and creative medium to shed light upon the realities of the social issues that surround the world we live in today from an Indigenous perspective. The first short dramatic film I wrote and produced is titled The Shifter, a film that speaks to reclaiming power for an Indigenous woman.
