You can turn a page, change a channel or close a window on your computer, but you can't erase a billboard from a landscape. This Space Available is a captivating documentary that takes us to several of the world's greatest cities including Toronto to explore outdoor advertising's proliferation and dire lack of regulation. The film considers the blurry line dividing art and ads, questions the economic viability of billboards and asks: at what point does advertising become visual pollution? It also shows how ordinary citizens combat the excesses of advertising some legal, some not so much. Either way, the film proves we shouldn't remain passive recipients to the hard sell.

Bully
Friday, April 26 at 1:00pm / Youth Day / 98mins / 2012 / USA
Go-previous Go-next

At a point in time when bullying in America has reached epidemic proportions, Emmy-winning director Lee Hirsch invites viewers to spend a year in the lives of students and parents who contend with public torment and humiliation on a daily basis. By following the young victims from the classroom to their living rooms, we are given an intimate glimpse into the effects bullying has on their families and their developing sense of self-worth. Meanwhile, parents, administrators, and other students struggle to find a workable solution to the problem that will never go away unless we all stand up and face it eye to eye. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Open Pit

Go-previous Go-next

Open Pit, a feature documentary, explores the impacts of gold mining, one of the most lucrative industries in the world. In the remote highlands of Cajamarca in Peru operates the Yanacocha mine, the most profitable gold mine in the world. Constantly taking over more land and impacting the environment, the mine is conflicting with the natives and their way of life based on agriculture and farming. The film gives an intimate look into the lives of native populations in Peru, their customs and traditions currently being threatened by the world's intense demand for gold. The film also explores the impacts of gold mining on the social, economic and political life of the country.

Liberia 77
Friday, April 26th at 9:00pm / 74mins / 2011 / Canada
Go-previous Go-next

Liberia in the 1970s was a childhood paradise for brothers Jeff and Andrew Topham. Endless beaches, thick jungle – even a pet chimp. Their father worked for a Canadian company that made explosives for the Liberian mining industry, and also took thousands of photographs – recording not only his ex-pat family’s African experience, but also a country and a people on the edge of destruction. A bloody coup d’etat and two brutal civil wars would soon devastate the nation. 30 years later, and now both photographers themselves, Jeff and Andrew return to Liberia to revisit and re-shoot their childhood Eden.
