Gimme Some Truth: No Honour in Truth: The Charlie Hagopian Story

Thu, Nov 2 / 9 pm
Directed by Juliette Hagopian
2017, Canada, 62 min
World Premiere

Introduction and Q&A with Juliette Hagopian.

Charlie Hagopian is a man who was caught in the crosshairs of the investigation that captured murderer Paul Bernardo in the 1980s. These are his fuzzy memories of being one of dozens of suspects investigated by the Green Ribbon Task Force in St. Catharines after being what he thinks is a star witness.  Ignited by the frustration of trying to get through to the investigators and trying to clear his name, Charlie absconds into a coincidental kaleidoscope – chemical exposure at a jobsite cuts him down in his prime; he wages war with the Worker’s Compensation Board; a tribunal with the College of Physicians and Surgeons; wild conspiracies of men working together against him; invoking God to watch over him all the while; and an unrequited love spanning a decade for one of Bernardo’s girlfriends. Dreams from the heavens guide Charlie back to his center – he knows it was all in the hands of God, cover-up or no cover-up.

Plays with Bargaining With the Future / Dir. Lasha Mowchun, 2017, Canada, 14 min / What would Winnipeg be like if there was no winter? An oil working family grapples with climate change as a father considers his son’s future.
