CASTE A WAVE, 22min, USA, Documentary
Directed by Fancy Fechser

The word “surf” originated in India in 1599, yet surfing has only existed there for the past ten years. In this groundbreaking short film we take audiences to the small fishing village of Mahabalipuram on the Indian east coast, where we meet local and visiting surfers, relatives of surfers and locals. We see firsthand how surf culture is impacting the community and how a new wave of connectivity between Indians and their once-feared ocean has given birth to a model for global environmental.

SECOND ACT PROGRAM


THE LAST TEAR, 11min, USA, Documentary
Directed by Christopher Lee

Sexual violence against women has accompanied almost every large-scale conflict, yet most of its victims are silenced. One such sad episode is that of the “comfort women,” or more accurately, the estimated 200,000 women who were recruited to sexually serve the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II.

SHADOW OF A GIANT, 29min, Canada, Documentary
Directed by Clark Ferguson

Shadow of a Giant tells the story of one Canada’s largest environmental disasters, Yellowknife’s Giant Mine. Buried in collapsing chambers within the city of Yellowknife, and beside the 9th largest lake in the world, sits 237,000 tons of the highly toxic contaminant, arsenic trioxide, a byproduct of the defunct gold mine. The city of Yellowknife and the surrounding aboriginal communities depend on a remediation plan that will refrigerate the arsenic into place, until a permanent solution can be found. Shadow of a Giant tells the story of Giant through the people who live on top of it and call it home. From the remediation (clean up) team who work to stabilize the arsenic; to the people who live and work in Yellowknife; to those who worked at the mine; to the proponents of the extraction industry in the north; to the Yellowknives Dene First Nation that live within hundreds of metres of the contaminated site. Their voices tell the story of Giant’s history, and re-imagine what the mine site could be in the future.
