We Rise Above: NEW FILMS ON HUMAN RIGHTS

In partnership with the Canadian Museum for Human Rights 

The 2nd We Rise Above film series explores issues in freedom, human rights and the need to eradicate racism. Premieres include a vitally important film on the murder and disappearances of young Aboriginal women along British Columbia’s Highway 16 and a new film on Ai Weiwei who deals with the ongoing forces of censorship in China. The series contains many tales of courage and human dignity with an entertaining and thought-provoking look at the Raging Grannies movement, a group of older women who refuse to sit down and let life pass them by.

Presented in partnership with the Canadian Museum for Human  Rights

______________________________________________________________

Granny Power is an  entertaining and thought-provoking look at the “Raging Grannies” movement as they fight for peace, social justice and the environment. We get to understand what motivates them, see the broad range of the causes they embrace and how they have indeed found the recipe for eternal youth. The film follows granny actions that have taken place across North America in the past decade, and brings us into the lives of several witty, energetic and committed grannies as they celebrate the 25th anniversary of the movement. With disarming smiles and biting lyrics they challenge authorities and stereotypes alike.
