The following shorts were curated to round out the Canadian Change Makers program and highlight diverse perspectives coast to coast. The individuals and communities woven through each of the films in the collection explores the relationships and connections we make with ourselves, with one another, and with the environments that make us all a part of the common thread of the whole — as witnessed through a filmmaker’s lens. 


Language: English

Grandmothers is a lyrical, short documentary that lends deep listening to, and seeks universal wisdom from, three formidable older women from diverse communities. Grandmothers explores the worlds of three women who have reached a formidable age. It gently seeks universal wisdom through their specific tales of hardship and humour. In response to these stories, three young artists (a dancer, a musician and an animator) weave their work throughout the film. Grandmothers demonstrates the richness that can be derived from intergenerational relationships and subtly attempts to address the lack of intergenerational spaces in popular North American culture.
