Private Documentaries

Activities and Events

The beauty and complexity of documentary creation are often tied to the intensity of the human relationships involved. Not just those seen on-camera, but between filmmakers and subjects. What happens when those subjects are loved ones, whether family members or close friends? Manic, Primas and Taming the Horse, three films in this year’s Canadian Feature competition, bravely tackle these questions. Filmmakers Kalina Bertin, Laura Bari and Tao Gu will discuss their unique experiences of making their films.
