On The Farm : A story of survival (Femmes autochtones du Canada)

, par  Sophie

Vancouver — On The Farm (Unclaimed) is no easy movie-going experience. It shouldn’t be.

The film tells the story of the victims of serial killer Robert Pickton, the B.C. pig farmer who was charged with the murder of dozens of missing women, mostly sex workers from the Downtown Eastside. He was found guilty on six counts of second-degree murder in 2007.

A more sensational retelling of the story would be about Pickton, but On The Farm is clearly not about the character portrayed briefly by actor Ben Cotton, who doesn’t have a single line of dialogue and is simply credited as “The Farmer.”

Instead, On The Farm shines a light on the story of the women who were lost in the process of a drawn-out and botched police investigation.
