Earlier this year I was asked by organizers of the Culture Unplugged film festival to contribute two of my films to the upcoming online festival themed “Humanity Explored.”
I agreed and submitted my short film called “Burgundy” about the struggle of Montreal’s historic black community, known as Little Burgundy, to reopen the Negro Community Centre, which has been closed for over 30 years and lost to generations of youth.
I also sent them a dvd copy of my only feature documentary titled “Montreal, tales of gentrification in a bohemian city,” which is about the effect of condo development on former working class areas in Canada’s most industrious city. These two films are based on urban issues I felt strongly about and filmed, produced and edited all by myself.
