Including the Screening of:

—-> Souha Surviving Hell:

A cinematic journey into Khiam Prison with the charismatic Souha Bishara. In 1989 at the age of twenty-one, Souha – a devoted communist – agreed to attempt the assassination of Lebanese General Antoine Lahad, who was collaborating with the Israeli Army in the South of Lebanon…. Lahad survived, but Souha was quickly arrested and thrown in the Khiam prison where she spent ten years for the attempt on Lahad’s life. Conditions in Khiam were horrific, and Souha endured six of those years in solitary confinement.

—-> Borderless:

A documentary film produced by KAIROS Canada, directed by Gemini nominated filmmaker Min Sook Lee, written by poet Dionne Brand and narrated by dub poet d’bi young. As undocumented workers & their allies are mobilizing to protest recent deportations, this striking film revels the stories of people living in this precarious situation….

Borderless is a twenty-five minute documentary poem about migrants living and working without status in Canada. Told in their own voices, the stories of Geraldo, an undocumented Costa Rican construction worker, and Angela, a second-generation Caribbean domestic worker, bring to life problems of labour exploitation and family separation caused by restrictive immigration policy. Viewers are introduced to an invisible workforce and invited to reflect on the
hidden costs of sustaining our first world economy.
