Ernest Webb

Born in James Bay and raised in the Cree community of Chisasibi, Ernest Webb has devoted his life to telling the stories of Canada’s Aboriginal peoples across all media. Co-founder of Rezolution Pictures with Catherine Bainbridge in 2001, Webb began by making documentaries about small Aboriginal communities, in his words, ‘Telling peoples’ stories, stories that might not otherwise have been told, by people that might not have been heard before.’ Committed to this ethos, the company made several films inspired by his home community with Webb directing and/or co-directing; these include Cree Spoken Here, The Last Explorer, and Down the Mighty River.

With Rezolution’s increasing success, Webb has led the charge as Rezo branched out into series, such as the highly successful comedy Mohawk Girls, recently nominated for four Canadian Screen awards, and the popular documentary series Indians and Aliens, which he directs and hosts. Along with the team at Rezolution, he continues to produce top calibre documentaries such as the Peabody-winning Reel Injun and the highly anticipated Rumble. With the creation of Minority Media in 2010, Webb brought his passion for Aboriginal stories into the gaming world, with Spirits of Spring, co-created with gaming visionary Vander Caballero. Currently in development on Dirty Red Boys with director Jeff Barnaby, Webb continues to inspire by bringing meaningful indigenous stories to the screen, honouring past and future generations.
