Survivors Rowe – Documentary Film presented by Lakehead University

Survivors Rowe

Survivors Rowe For almost twenty years Ralph Rowe held a unique esteem in the isolated First Nation Reserves of Northern Ontario. As an Anglican minister and a Boy Scout leader, Rowe was revered and trusted by community elders and cultivated adoration from all the children he worked with. He had the perfect cover for a pedophile. Rowe abused an estimated 500 native boys throughout the 1970s and 80s.

“Survivors Rowe” documents the harrowing and tragic stories of three men who as boys were victims of Rowe. Joshua Frog, John Fox and Ralph Winter open their hearts to recount the abuse they experienced as children, and how their lives disintegrated because of it. A melody of pain, anguish, forgiveness and love, these three brave men embody the sacred truth that it’s only when one confronts their past, that they are able to face their future.

Documentary film presented by Lakehead University at the Thunder Bay Art Gallery on Saturday, May 9th, 2015. Opening mingle at 2:00pm with a performance by singer songwriter Nick Sherman. Screeting at 3:30p.m. followed by a Q & A with the film subjects and producers. Light refreshments will be served.
