Flood,Directed by Amanda Strong, 2017, Canada, 4 min

The Crying Conch, Direted by Vincent Toi, 2017, Canada, 20 min
The true history of the leader of an 18th-century slave rebellion in Haiti is transformed into the stuff of myth and ritual in a visually sumptuous effort by Canada’s Vincent Toi, connecting the brutality of our colonial past with the resilience of the present.

Pre-Drink, Directed by Marc-Antoine Lemire, 2017, Canada, 23 min
Alexe, a trans woman, and Carl, her gay best friend, disrupt the boundaries of their friendship when they decide to have sex for the first time — and raw emotional truths collide with illusions of breezy detachment at a time of transition.
