20:45-36:45 Colombian Peace Deal
Kyla Sankey, Jacobin Writer & Activist. The people of Colombia are in an anxious state after a historic referendum resulted in a jarring win for right-wing opponents of peace. The peace deal was arrived at after four years of hard negotiations between the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC-EP, and the administration of President Juan Manel Santos, yet it hinged on the approval by a majority of Colombians, who ultimately said “No” to ending a 52-year war that claimed hundreds of thousands of lives and displaced approximately six million people.
Films and social subjects
37:00-48:00 Denis Deletrac, Director, FREIGHTENED
Celebrated documentarian Denis Delestrac returns with an intrepid investigation into the myriad economic and environmental ramifications of water-borne cargo shipping. Freighters may have become seemingly innocuous fixtures in Vancouver’s waters, but the inner workings of the industry remain shrouded in secrecy. Given that 90% of everything we consume arrives via ship, this is essential viewing for us all.
