A diverse program of documentary films showing courageous and creative responses to displacement and marginalization, presented in partnership with, and programmed by the Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers.
City of Dreams (2013). Director: Sally Truss. Run Time: 19 minutes.
City of Dreams takes us behind the scenes of This Is My City’s annual festival that celebrates the artwork of Calgary’s homeless and at risk population. A surprising and personal journey – from the heart!
Siksika Strong (2013). Director: Trevor Solway. Run Time: 12 minutes.
In the aftermath of Southern Alberta's 2013 flood, hundreds of people on the Siksika reserve were left homeless. Community leaders, off-reserve citizens and organizations put their lives on hold to aid in restoration and flood relief. Together we are Siksika Strong.
Inocente (2013). Directors: Sean Fine and Andrea Nix Fine. Run Time: 40 minutes.
Inocente tells the inspiring coming-of-age story of a 15-year old girl in California. Though homeless and undocumented, she refuses to give up on her dream of being an artist, proving that the hand she has been dealt does not define her - her dreams do.
