I think the thing that made it so powerful was your willingness to be so honest. You were modelling for us what real repentance has to do, how unflinchingly we have to examine the legacy, the repercussions, and the gains wrongfully made as a result of sins of the past. Naturally, it leads us to look at the story of Canada's aboriginal people.
Visually and aurally it was stunning! Colourful and varied, with clear sound and especially great music. The historic footage was amazing. I wept several times, especially at the high school graduation and the story of that brave woman, and the scenes of Martin Luther King illustrated by scenes from the present. Usually films like this leave us with much guilt but little hope, and you took us through that into an inviting new place.
