The film recently premiered at the “Human Rights Watch Film Festival” at Toronto, CA on March 6, 2014. The film's director Matt Smiley stated that he will announce more screenings on the official Facebook website.

According to the official website of “Highway of Tears.” The synopsis is right here. - “Highway of Tears - is about the missing or murdered women along a 724 kilometer stretch of highway in northern British Columbia. None of the 18 cold-cases since the 1960's had been solved, until project E-Pana (a special division of the RCMP) managed to link DNA to Portland drifter, Bobby Jack Fowler with the 1974 murder of 16 year-old hitchhiker, Colleen MacMillen.”

“In Canada, over 600 Aboriginal women have been reported missing or been murdered since the 1960s. Viewers will discover what the effects of generational poverty, residential schools, systemic violence, and high unemployment rates have done to First Nations reserves and how they tie in with the missing and murdered women in the Highway of Tears cases. Aboriginal women are considered abject victims of violence.”
