Ottawa winters are cold and many people in our city go without adequate accommodation and protection from the elements. In his first feature length documentary Project Cold Days, filmmaker Stephen Coleman helps us meet these often invisible and voiceless people and allows them to tell their stories. He dropped by CKCU for an interview with Monique Fuller (host of A Luta Continua) and I tagged along to take some behind the scenes video. Here are a few excerpts from the interview.
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.
