About the movie: YYC Colours is a documentary created by Canadian Cultural Mosaic Foundation (http://www.canadianculturalmosaicfoundation.com/) and aims to start discussions about racism in Calgary and Canada in general. The film creators spoke to hundreds of people and recorded over 100 interviews about how people in Calgary have experienced racism. The goal of the film is to promote honest conversations about racism and privilege in our society. The subject of race can be difficult to talk about, so this film approaches the subject through real, personal stories. The documentary also addresses topics such as hate crimes, privilege, white fragility, bigotry, xenophobia and islamophobia.
Please be advised the film contains some coarse language in the film, and we recommend that children be 12 years or older.
If you are interested in attending we ask you to sign up at the eventbrite link provided above so we can track attendance numbers. Also note that this event is open to all and you are welcome to bring a friend or neighbor if they are interested.
We look forward to seeing you there.
