The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
RAES CALVERT, SEAN HARRIS OLIVER
Capturing the under-represented realities of Indigenous soldiers in WWI, this dynamic multimedia presentation takes audiences into the unique creative process behind a moving play and graphic novel.
An explosive graphic novel, Redpatch is a potent and necessary perspective on Canadian involvement in WWI. Following a young Métis soldier from Vancouver Island to the trenches of France, Redpatch confronts the horrors of war—bringing the under-represented contributions of over four thousand Indigenous soldiers to life. In a high-energy multimedia presentation, co-authors Raes Calvert and Sean Harris Oliver share the creation process of the graphic novel, including video footage from a once in a lifetime research trip to Nootka Island. It’s both a fascinating glimpse into a unique creative process and powerful demonstration on making history immediate, accurate and eye-opening for our times.
