Day 6 at Hot Docs
We finished the day with two documentary screenings. 'One Day After Peace' is about an Israeli mother whose son is killed by a Palestinian sniper. The film follows her journey as she explores the possibility and nature of forgiveness and decides whether to seek out a meeting with her son’s killer, who lost his own family to Israeli soldiers long before taking up a gun himself. It was very interesting and we highly recommend it. The second film was called 'My Name is Faith' a story about a 12-year-old girl with attachment disorder. We gave it mixed reviews.
Overall an amazing and productive week at Hot Docs...we pitched Defensora, had meetings, attended workshops, screened documentaries, filmed interviews for Defensora and talked 'film' late into the night!
Time to go home!
