Synopsis

A documentary haunted by testimonies, archival footage and still photos. First Nations filmmakers Clint Alberta and Elaine Moyah explore the lasting impacts of the early 20th century tuberculosis outbreak on Aboriginal communities. Following the paths of those who were relocated, uprooted and separated from their loved ones, Lost Songs is an eloquent documentary about a medical fight that became an even greater battle to maintain one’s roots, courage and spirit.
