I only started this blog in Dec 2015. Way behind most people I suppose but nonetheless, I am happy to create a space to chat about my work and also give thoughts about the works of others. Creatively speaking, last year was a year of Consent, a short social justice documentary that I produced and directed commissioned by The Canadian HIV/AIDS Network. The film had a Toronto premiere on November 28th at the Art Gallery of Ontario Jackman Hall theatre as well as several screenings leading up to international Aids Day including;
- Montréal, QC: Tuesday, December 1, 2015, 7:00pm at Pavillon Judith Jasmin Annexe (JE), Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), 1564 Saint-Denis.
- Edmonton, AB: Tuesday, December 1, 2015, 7:00pm at Latitude 53 Contemporary Visual Culture (10242 – 106 Street)
- Vancouver, BC: Thursday, October 22, 2015, 7:30pm at Fletcher Challenge Theatre, 515 West Hastings Street.
- HIV Outrage Justice Film Festival in Melbourne, Australia: Saturday, November 28, 2015, 7:00pm
It was also a year of looking at different ways to tell the stories that I’ve spent so many years documenting, researching and writing about. I am hoping that this space will nurture how I communicate these ideas and inspire my growth as an artist, storyteller, film curator and critic.
