  • In 1991, with Canada at war against Iraq, Vancouver filmmaker Marusya Bociurkiw gathered a group of Arab Canadian women to tell their stories of harassment and fear. That was the start of Unspoken Territory, a recent Canadian docu-drama that tells a story between the lines of history and memory, documenting the ways in which people have been unfairly targeted for subversive activities during the last century.

    Eight women speak to the camera. One recalls being in a prison camp, another describes an army ambush on her land; still another relives the shock at being held in jail without trial fro 90 days. All of these women are Canadaian citizens, talking about incidents that happened on Canadain soil. Unspoken Territory examines Ôlost , unspoken moments in Canadian history, told through the stories of First Nations, immigrant and Quebecois women.
