Indictment: The Crimes of Shelly Chartier
Sat, May 26, 2018 – 1:35 PM – BMO Sports Lounge
Sensationalized in the media as a high profile catfishing case involving an NBA superstar and an aspiring model, Shelly Chartier was portrayed as a master manipulator who used social media as her weapon. Through the sensitive and intelligent lens of Indigenous directors Lisa Jackson and Shane Belcourt, the sensationalism is swept aside to reveal something much more compelling and complex – the story of a young woman caught in historical circumstances beyond her control and how she struggles to rebuild her life after incarceration. With in-depth access to Shelly, “Indictment” unpacks the crime and raises important questions about the Canadian justice system.
