“Healing always comes with wounds. They are inextricably linked. At its best, art exposes the latter to further the former and in doing so can mark a path for reconciliation. Reckoning from ARTICLE 11 does just this. As powerful, poignant and vital a performance as you will see this year, at a time when we need it most. ” Jesse Wente, Ojibwe. Film critic and Director of Film Programmes at TIFF Bell Lightbox.
When the truth has been incinerated and reconciliation seems impossible, there is Reckoning.

Created and produced by A11 founding artists Tara Beagan and Andy Moro, Reckoning is an ode to the irreconcilable. A triptych in sound, movement, video and text, Reckoning is an incendiary theatrical presentation of three separate experiences with Indian Residential Schools, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and the fallout that has already reverberated across the country.
