Terry Jones' thesis film, Osnö', is inspired by true events revealed in his short documentary, Soup For My Brother. The protagonist in Osnö’ is twelve-year-old Young Speaker, whose preoccupation with WWII conflicts with his grandfather’s attempts to teach the boy the customs and traditions of Seneca/Haudenosaunee culture. Critical and relevant themes in Osnö’ include the loss of ancestral knowledge, the endangerment of Indigenous languages, war, colonialism, and intergenerational historical trauma.
