Hot Docs Day 3: May I Recommend


THE MALAGASY WAY

TODAY
ROM Theatre 
Sat, Apr 26 3:30 PM

This film gives you a look at poverty, not from the perspective of having nothing, but from the Malagasy people themselves speaking of how their sense of community, culture and fortitude has enabled them to maintain their sense of pride and fortitude.

PINE RIDGE 
 

TODAY
Scotiabank Theatre 7 
Sat, Apr 26 6:00 PM 

This is not an easy film to watch, but it is an interesting look at poverty that is a direct result of historical conditioning. The Pine Ridge reservation is just above Haiti in terms of its lack of economic development. This South Dakota reservation brings to light the generational effects of the Wounded Knee Massacre (1890) and references the impact of the Wounded Knee Incident (1973). Seen through the eyes of several youth, the film asks the question: why are such dire conditions allowed to continue in one of the richest countries on earth.
