Winnipegger Jason Mason is playing one of the lead roles in The Child Of Ours, as the father of a young girl who goes missing.

"I play the dad and it's not a far cry for me because I am a dad and I have two children so it was easier to step into that part. But the hardest part was trying to imagine what a parent feels when their child is missing - when they can't find their child. When they're going days, going weeks," Mason describes. "I can't imagine how much hurt that would bring; how much pain that would feel like."

He hopes that the premiere of this film will help to raise awareness of the many missing and murdered indigenous women throughout Canada as well as stressing the importance of keeping your own families and children safe. 

The premiere is March 30 at The Viscount Gort. The red carpet is at 6:00 p.m. with the showing at 7:00 p.m. Find your tickets and more information here.
