Conviction

Nance Ackerman ⋅ Ariella Pahlke ⋅ Teresa MacInnes I CANADA 78 min

In Partnership with OPIRG

Not another “broken prison” film, this collaboration is a “broken society” film—an ambitious and inspired rebuild of our community from the inside out. By exploring alternatives to prison through the eyes of women behind bars and empowering them to reimagine their lives through artistic practices, the film compels viewers to examine why we imprison the most vulnerable among us, and at what cost.

In the frigid waters off of Russia’s Bering Strait, Inuit and Chukchi hunters still seek out the giant sea mammals that sustained their people since time immemorial. Life meets myth as a new generation of hunters sets out to sea to hunt the whales, walruses, and seals that have tied them to these remote shores since the beginning of time.

Our Dance of Revolution

Phillip Pike  | CANADA

Supported by Guelph Black Heritage Society

No, the revolution wasn’t televised. But it was hugged, chanted, marched, and danced into existence. Our Dance of Revolution tells the story of how Black queer folks in Toronto faced every adversity, from invisibility to police brutality, and over a four-decade span rose up to become a vibrant, triple-snap-fierce community.
