Status Quo? The unfinished business of feminism in Canada – 2012, 87 min
Feminism has shaped the society we live in. But just how far has it brought us, and how relevant is it today? Status Quo? zeroes in on key concerns such as violence against women, access to abortion, and universal childcare, asking how much progress have we truly made on these issues. It uncovers answers that are provocative and at times shocking. Rich with archival material and startling contemporary stories, Status Quo? is crucial viewing for every Canadian.
Children’s Program – Winter 2013
Big Mouth – 8 min (6+)
Equal parts truthful and rude, Trudy is a little girl with an unfiltered and deeply curious way of looking at the world. An animated short about one of life’s big lessons, and a film for anyone, young or old, who has ever gotten in trouble for saying too much.
HA’Aki – 5 min (5+)
HA’Aki is a lyrical and wonderfully unorthodox interpretation of hockey as played in the mind of a lyrical and wonderfully unorthodox animation artist.
Sainte Barbe – 8 min (5+)
How a little boy’s love for his grandpa—and the old man’s bushy beard—turns to magic!
Christopher, Please Clean up Your Room! – 7 min (5+)
The resident goldfish and roaches in Christopher’s room protest his messiness and take matters into their own hands. Based on a book by Itah Sadu.
Glasses – 22 min (5+)
In this puppet animation we meet a little boy who lives in a lonely, blurry world. His near-sightedness brings humiliations in the schoolyard and in his Grade 1 class. A visit to the eye doctor brings things into focus, and his first pair of glasses changes everything!
