///Films///

Walls by Lauren Gillies
Walls is a short documentary that explores the internal turmoil of the filmmaker’s personal struggle with mental health while simultaneously understanding the destructive implications of stigmatization surrounding this subject. The film uses rotoscope animation along with family archives in order to chronicle the whole family’s experiences and memories with mental illness.

Teta, Opi & Me by Tara Hakim
Shot entirely on an iPhone, Teta, Opi & Me is a poetic, meditative, multilingual, and feeling-driven short film, documenting the intricacies of the artist’s playful process in capturing her grandparents’ enduring romance through social, political and racial adversity.

In Between the Lines by Sarah Claydon
In-Between-the-Lines is a documentary film about the former media officer for the Syrian Coalition, Bayan Khatib. During peak media attention of the Syrian Uprising, Bayan connected North American journalists to those inside the conflict. Operating from her home in Mississauga, Ontario, a screen divided Bayan from the front lines. In between the conflict in Syria and a Canadian suburb, the emotional toll she suffered sheds light on the burden of knowledge, while Bayan’s industry expertise reveals how sheltered Western audiences remain.

The Right to Learn by Conor DeVries
The Right to Learn investigates the drastic increase in higher education costs in Canada over the past few decades. It follows three students as they navigate the real-world effects of this rise in tuition, as well as the impact seen within educational institutions and Canadian culture at large.

The Walled City (Ciudad Amurallada) by Katrin Kocsis
The Walled City (Ciudad Amurallada), a short documentary film, documents the daily lives of residents in a marginalized neighbourhood of Cartagena, Colombia as they navigate tourist dominated spaces surrounding their homes and confront oppressive practices and police brutality.
