REEL CANADA Launches Black and Indigenous Realities: Anti Racism Program

REEL CANADA is launching a compelling new program to help students and teachers across the country discuss inequality and racism in Canada through film.

The program kicks off with a nation-wide interactive livestream on Black realities, featuring award-winning director Charles Officer in discussion of his acclaimed documentary THE SKIN WE’RE IN. Garvia Bailey will moderate the discussion, in which participating students will submit questions and comments online.

A second livestream will be presented on Dec. 1 focusing on Indigenous Realities. Filmmaker and activist Sarain Fox will discuss her experiences as host of Michelle Latimer’s RISE: STANDING ROCK PART II. Indigenous musician, producer, and educator Ronnie Dean Harris will moderate.
