Francis (Mi'kmaq) is the producer of the Aboriginal
Public Television Network series "Eastern Tide," which
he directs with Sam Grana. The documentary series explores many
aspects of contemporary Mi'kmaq life in New Brunswick and Maine,
from specials on notable individuals and traditional arts to expositions
of political and social issues, such as fishing rights or the
impact of boarding school. Francis has also produced the albums
of prominent Native musicians, including his brother's group,
Hubert Francis and Eagle Feather. Francis lives in Big Cove, New
"I decided to become a filmmaker because I saw a need to
provide an avenue for elders to express themselves. We come from
a small, rural area and I wanted to give voice to the elders'
struggles especially in the key area of treaty rights. Our people
wanted to express themselves and I thought television was an ideal
and powerful medium."
