Event Details:

On February 8, two films will be screened. The first is an award-winning animated short film Black Soul/Âme noire, 2000 (nine mins.) directed by Martine Bertrand. Through the continuous morphing of image and sound, the history of the African diaspora unfolds through the story told by an elderly grandmother to her young grandson. 

The short film will be followed by Sisters in the Struggle, 1991 (49 min) directed by Dionne Brand and Ginny Stikeman. Black women activists share their experiences and their insights as they struggle with the dual problem of racism and sexism. Though produced 27 years ago, their words continue to resonate decades later.
