These three sisters have all had extensive careers in performance and filmmaking across Canada and abroad. Jennifer is a past ACTRA Award of Excellence recipient, a performer in such features as Dance Me Outside and Empire of Dirt, which she also produced, and founder of Redcloud Studios. Tamara is a performer, artist and musician, who has performed in the Broadway show of RENT and TV shows such as Coroner and Heartland and who is the writer on Jennifer’s documentary series Future History. Sarah is a performer and filmmaker, whose series credits include Mocassin Flats, The Border, Cashing In, Between and Tin Star.

David and Jean chat with Jennifer, Tamara and Sarah on a wide range of interesting subjects, including their family background and growing up together, their careers in the business, memorable projects and stories over the years, their work helping nurture artistry among Indigenous youth, and their favourite comfort foods (Matzah Ball Soup!). You won’t want to miss this wonderful and rich conversation with these treasured Canadian performers.
