150 Seconds of Ontario Film Festival: Part 2 [Factory Media Centre]




150 Seconds of Ontario Film Festival – PART TWO: Labour and Love 

May 18th, 2017, 7PM

Join us for a film program co-presented by the Factory Media Centre and the Workers Arts & Heritage Centre as part of the 150 Seconds of Ontario Film Festival. Presented in commemoration of the procession of Hamilton's Nine Hours Pioneers, a virtual general strike of Hamilton's skilled workers in May of 1872, this film program links experiences of work with the connections shared between parents and children, lovers and workers. Highlighting the work and perspectives of filmmakers from Ontario, the program includes a short experimental film by conceptual artist Joyce Wielend of workers on the picket line in Kitchener, to a daughter reflecting on her father's life as a miner in Northwestern Ontario. Curated by Tara Bursey

Featured Films:

  • Solidarity by Joyce Wieland
  • Dirty Laundry by Richard Fung
  • Curse Cures by Lesley Loksi Chan
  • Northland: The Long Journey by Edie Steiner
  • My Father, Francis by Casey Mecija

This event has been sponsored by the Ontario150 Community Celebration Program to support the Factory Media Centre in commemorating and celebrating Ontario’s 150th anniversary in 2017. For more information, contact Tara Bursey, Program Coordinator at (905) 522-3003 ex. 29 or tara@wahc-museum.ca
