An artist faces public opposition as she struggles to mount a large-scale exhibition of paintings based on a police poster of missing women, twenty-six of whom are found murdered on a serial killer&́#x80;™s farm. In 2006 Pamela Masik, a contemporary artist, set out to create a large-scale exhibition of paintings focused on women who went missing over the previous two decades on the streets of Vancouver. Titled &́#x80;œThe Forgotten&́#x80;, this powerful series of sixty-nine portraits would be based on a police task force poster of the missing women&́#x80;™s headshots.. In 2007, pig farmer Robert Pickton stood trial for the murders of twenty-six women whose remains were found at his farm and slaughterhouse. He would admit to an undercover police officer that he killed forty-nine. The twenty-six women identified as Pickton&́#x80;™s victims are included on the task force poster and form part of Masik&́#x80;™s work.. Over a six year period we follow Masik&́#x80;™s struggle to exhibit this collection of paintings, and the public outcry that ensues. All of this amidst a shocking murder trial; an inquiry into the police department&́#x80;™s failed investigation; and the families&́#x80;™ search for answers in Canada&́#x80;™s largest serial murder case in history..
