Sarah was on assignment covering the 2015 Toronto Film Festival this year for Consequence Of Sound.

She didn’t particularly enjoy this film, saying “Perhaps it’s fitting, in some way, to pay tribute to a prolific artist who died before his 30th birthday with a film filled with wasted potential.”

Where To Invade Next

Sarah was on assignment covering the 2015 Toronto Film Festival this year for Consequence Of Sound.

Michael Moore’s new return-to-form film Where To Invade Next premiered at the fest and it was “a very good op-ed in favor of America’s ability to live up to its potential and build itself into a country that actually represents the idea of liberty and equality that it’s espoused for so long.”

‘Ninth Floor’ Doc Explores An Ugly Event At Montreal University In ’69

Ninth Floor

Ninth Floor

In 1969 six students of Caribbean descent attending Sir George Williams University in Montreal accused one of its professors of being a racist.

When the school inadequately addressed their accusation it sparked an extended sit-in on the ninth floor of the school’s computer building.

A suspicious fire, riot police, arrests and some peculiar agent provocateurism later, the result was one of the ugliest racial incidents in Canadian history.

Vancouver filmmaker Mina Shum recently revisited this not-well-known event for her new documentary, Ninth Floor.

I talked to her about it for Samaritan Mag.
