Avi Federgreen is one of Canada's top independent filmmakers and distributors. In partnership with McIntyre Media, we are now offering this wonderful collection of seventeen "indie films" that will inspire, intrigue and inform students and staff.
These programs deal with a vast array of subjects. Learn how big things happen when humanity is at the core of business in A New Economy. In the Shadow of a de Beers diamond mine, the remote community of Attawapiskat lurches from crisis to crisis, as their homeland transforms into a modern frontier. Follow Attawapiskat's journey from obscurity into the international spotlight in After the Last River. The Globe and Mail calls Road to Mercy "powerful, provocative, and philosophical." It chronicles Canada's first legal-assisted deaths and peers into the extreme boundaries of this practice.
A "must-have" collection of sixteen programs for colleges, universities and libraries. Please call today for pricing.
