Q&A

Rude

Dir. Clement Virgo
With Maurice Dean Wint, Rachael Crawford, Clark Johnson
1995, 89min, DCP

 

Jamaican-Canadian director Clement Virgo’s landmark feature debut—the first Canadian film made by an entirely black crew—is a searing, poetic portrait of black lives fighting to overcome socioeconomic constraints. Over the course of one Easter weekend in a Toronto housing project, three desperate people—an ex-drug dealer-turned-artist trying to go straight; a boxer coming to terms with his sexuality; and a young woman coping with a breakup—confront the darkest parts of themselves while searching for a path forward.

 
How To Build A Treehouse

Dir. Gavin Mendonca
2018, 10min

 

A lone guitarist sits on the Sea Wall, an embankment along the Atlantic coast in Guyana, strumming his guitar. He closes his eyes and begins hearing powerful words in the ancient and native Patamona language, perhaps the voice of Kai. When he opens his eyes, he finds himself in a new, unfamiliar place.
