The Project

A young Indigenous mother wakes up one morning to discover her son is missing from their family home. Everyone she turns to for help either disbelieves her story or suspects her of wrongdoing. "Stolen" is a short fiction suspense thriller inspired by the real-life horrors of the Sixties Scoop, of which intergenerational impacts are still felt today.

The Artists

Humber Indigenous Education & Engagement and Humber Galleries are pleased to partner together on the Indigenous Transmedia Fellowship. This program is for students who self-identify as First Nation (status and non-status), Métis, Inuit, as well as international members of an Indigenous nation. It brings visibility and support to the Indigenous community, while also fostering engagement and collaboration among creative peers. In 2022, under the mentorship of Humber staff, five students were selected to develop their talents in film installation, digital media, graphic design, and storytelling, resulting in the creation of "Stolen", a short fiction suspense thriller.


The 2022 ITF team would like to thank Humber Indigenous Education & Engagement, Humber Galleries, and the Faculty of Media and Creative Arts for their ongoing support.
