Thinking globally, created locally

Three Ottawa-produced documentaries provide different perspectives on looking inwards and outwards to make a positive change in the world.

Turning the Page at H’Art of Ottawadirected by Andrew Hall

For over a decade, H’Art of Ottawa has been a studio in downtown Ottawa where artists with disabilities explore visual art and creative writing. Last April, the 40+ artists at H’Art collaborated with musician and artist Jesse Stewart to present a multimedia performance at the National Arts Centre’s 4th Stage. Produced by Ottawa filmmaker Andrew Hall, Turning the Page at H’Art of Ottawa, is about the 4-month long collaborative creative process that led to the performance.

A Sacred River, directed by Jennifer Macklem and Sajan Sindhu

A collaboration between artists in India and a team from the University of Ottawa, A Sacred River is a poignant film about the Ganges, a sacred river that millions depend on for sustenance that is also under serious threat from industrial pollution.

Secret War, directed by Emanuela Campanella, Shannon Lough, Sarah Turnbull, Fangliang Xu

Canadian soldiers who served in Afghanistan now face a higher risk of dying from suicide than physical injuries from the battlefield. Secret War, a student-produced documentary from the School of Journalism at Carleton University, examines the impact of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) on war veterans and showcases an innovative project that is using horses to help veterans deal with the traumas of war.

 All profits from the screening of these three films will go to support the War Horse Project, H’Art of Ottawa, and emerging filmmakers in India.

We hope to see you there for this very exciting event!
