Gil Cardinal, an acclaimed Métis filmmaker, director and writer, has died at age 65.

“The world lost an amazing storyteller,” wrote former CBC anchor Carla Robinson. “May he rest peacefully with his ancestors.”

Robinson narrated one of Cardinal’s last films, the feature-length National Film Board (NFB) documentary Totem: The Return of the G’psgolox Pole, which was screened at the 2003 Toronto International Film Festival.

Cardinal had a long relationship with the NFB that started in 1970, producing several documentaries about contemporary indigenous life, including Foster Child, which detailed the search for his birth family and for which he won a Gemini in 1988.
