In Production

NO ADDRESS looks at the difficult reality of urban Indigenous populations in Montréal and showcases the organizations dedicated to helping them.


Many Indigenous people come to Montréal searching for jobs and a better life. They come without money, without friends, without jobs, and very quickly become part of the city's homeless population. In NO ADDRESS, Abenaki filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin examines the plight of these people—dislocated from their traditional values, alienated from the rest of the population, torn between staying and returning home. She also highlights the Montréal Native Friendship Centre and other organizations that are attempting to help them.
