Gimme Some Truth: Bell Media Hot Docs Showcase: Unarmed Verses

Sat, Nov 4 / 7 pm
Directed by Charles Officer
2017, Canada, 86 min
Manitoba premiere

 Followed by panel discussion in PLATFORM held by Black Space Winnipeg.

 Unarmed Verses is a thoughtful and vivid portrait of a Toronto low-income housing community facing imposed relocation. At the centre of the story is a remarkably astute and luminous 12-year-old black girl, Francine, whose poignant observations about life, the soul, and the power of art to give voice to those rarely heard in society become a solidifying force in her community. Unarmed Verses is a cinematic rendering of our universal need for self-expression and belonging, and a statement about the strength of community.

Presented in partnership with the Bell Media Hot Docs Showcase and Black Space Winnipeg.
