In Stolen Time, a riveting feature documentary, charismatic elder rights lawyer Melissa Miller takes on the for-profit nursing-home industry. It’s Miller’s most challenging case yet in her early career: a mass tort representing hundreds of families fighting some of the world’s most powerful long-term care corporations. Her adversaries stand accused of neglecting their vulnerable charges as they reap huge profits. Booming elderly populations worldwide add urgency to holding these corporations to account.

Stolen Time is a compelling call for justice from desperate families who’ve turned to the courts as a last resort. We witness surprising testimonies and images from researchers, advocates and, most notably, frontline caregivers whose work is often undervalued but disproportionately blamed for what goes wrong. The film is a rare inside look at a legal battle and an emerging elder justice movement with ramifications—and inspiration—for us all.

Join us on August 22nd from 6:30pm-9:30pm at the Roxy Theatre, located at 320 20th Street West, Saskatoon. Doors open at 6:30pm, film is 85 minutes long and starts at 7:00pm. *Note: there will be a panel and audience Q&A after the film. Panelists TBC.

“…a powerful film that really delivers a punch!” – Mike Cohen, The Suburban

“…exposes brutal corporate crime in the long-term care industry. The NFB’s chilling documentary reminds us that a society is measured by the compassion it extends to its most vulnerable.” – Adrian Mack, Stir
