TELUS Originals production funding announced for Elders' Project


With production funding from TELUS originals, Elders' Project (working title) is a feature-length film spotlighting the work of three Indigenous changemakers who are determined to halt intergenerational trauma. Stories of hope and homecoming intersect, as three visionary creators work with their communities. Charlene SanJenko of Splatsin in the Secwépemc Nation (Shuswap), Alfonso Salinas of the shíshálh Nation and swiya (Sunshine Coast) and Ecko Aleck of the Nlaka'pamux Nation (Lytton) are documenting and learning the traditional cultural teachings of their Elders. 


reGEN media makes sense.

Transformative media that delivers target returns.

With North American adults spending almost 12 hours per day connected to some type of media, the power to influence society to become the ancestors our future families need truly sits in our hands.

Impact investing backs companies working on the world's most challenging problems.

Impact media shifts behaviors and opens perspectives to ensure these same challenges never happen again.
