In the face of personal loss, a lawyer seeks to redress the injustice of colonisation through the establishment of an Indigenous forum at the European Union.
As a child, Aaju Peter was sent by her parents from Greenland to Denmark, where she quickly lost the traditions and language of her culture. On growing up, she travelled to Canada, only to witness the colonisation of the Inuit. Seeking a better world for future generations, Peter sets about bringing Denmark and Canada to justice. Filmmaker Lin Alluna charts Peter’s campaign, but also gives a platform for the activist lawyer to tell her own story, from the history of her culture to that of her own family, including the unexpected death of her youngest son. Revisiting locations where the trauma of forced assimilation remains an open wound, Twice Colonized
is a compassionate portrait of a brave individual and a catalyst for future discussions around colonialism.
