A scientist peers for God in the electrical activity of our brains. A 73-year-old prospector searches for gold in the remote wilderness of the north. An Ojibway man with advanced diabetes looks to his people’s past to find a way forward.

A selection of NFB works that explore the notion of belonging, from the stories we tell and the languages we speak, to the spaces we inhabit and the traditions we share.
A selection of NFB works that showcase Canada’s rich environment, wildlife and cultural heritage.
