“11'09'01”: Alaiin Brigand invited 11 renowned international directors
(Samira Makhmalbaf, Claude Lelouch, Youseff Chahine, Danis Tanovic,
Idrissa Ouedraogo, Ken Loach, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Amos Gitai,
Mira Nair, Sean Penn, Shohei Imamura) to look towards their own cultures,
their own memories, their own stories and their own language, and create a
film lasting 11'09"01 around the consequences of Sep 11. We will be
screening 4 of these films.

“Momiji- Japanese Maple" (23 mins) A personal documentary tracing three
generations in a Japanese Canadian family, from immigration to internment
in British Columbia during WWII, to the filmmaker's own childhood in a
white Montreal suburb. Directed by Nancy Tatebe, 1994.

“Whose Rights Anyway” (23 min): The film revolves around the security
certificate case of Mohamed Harkat, who has been detained since December
10, 2002. It also deals with the racism felt by the Arab and Muslim
community since the events of September 11, 2001 and how the Canadian
government is allowing itself to limit certain rights in the name of
“national security.” Directed by Anice Wong, 2005.


“Detained in Guelph” (12 min) With no film-making experience six
University of Guelph undergraduate students and a Sheridan College student
created a project using the medium of film to engage a wide audience in
dialogue about the role that post-9/11 security consciousness has had on
the detention and deportation of immigrants and refugees in Canada.
Produced and directed by Reel Alternatives Productions, 2004.

“No Time to Stop: Stories of immigrant women” (29 mins) The struggles of
working immigrant women in Canada, as seen through the lives of Kwai Fong
Lai, Alberta Onyejekwe, and Angela Williams. At home and at work, they
speak about the conditions that shape their lives. By tracing the
self-organizing of working immigrant women in domestic worker and hospital
worker associations, this documentary is a powerful call to action.
Directed by Helene Klodawsky, 1990.

“Threadbare” (20 min): In the summer of 2003, 23 Pakistani and one Indian
man were arrested by Canadian law enforcement under Project Thread, a
purported anti-terror investigation. The charges crumbled under scrutiny
yet the men were quietly deported. Threadbare is the story of these men
and the activist campaign - Project Threadbare- in its struggle to
exonerate, compensate, and naturalize the detainees. Produced and directed
by Arshad Khan, 2005.

“Sanctuary” (12 min): Sanctuary tells the story of Sergio Loreto, who has
lived in Canada for 18 years, but is now seeking sanctuary in a Toronto
church in defiance of a deportation order to Guatemala. Directed by Jamie
Escallon-Buraglia, 2005.
