Filmmaker Rhiana Chinapen’s interest in social justice issues drew her to documentaries and her work planning Ottawa’s One World Film Festival which celebrated its 28th anniversary in 2017. She recently completed her first film, an exploration of Capoeira (an Afro-Brazilian martial art which she practices) with the assistance of SAW Video Media Arts Centre’s Jumpstart Program.
This episode features Shannon Lough, Emanuela Campanella, Sarah Turnbull and Fangliang Xu, four students from the School of Journalism and Communication at Carleton University.
They have just completed their first film together, a documentary called “Secret War” about the innovative War Horse project which utilizes horses to help veterans dealing with the traumas of war. “Secret War” is an Official Selection at this year’s Yorkton Film Festival.
The Canadian Film Institute recently presented the film Antiviral by talented emerging Canadian filmmaker Brandon Cronenberg at a screening at the River Theatre at Carleton University. Cronenberg attended the screening and answered questions from the audience.
