The Stark Context for Canadians at Sunny Side of the Doc

At Sunny Side, in pitches, sessions and screenings, the array of inventive, audacious, investigative, TV, feature, and series documentaries on view was inspiring. The founder of Sunny Side, Yves Jeanneau, calls his market a “Carrefour de resistance,” (Crossroad of Resistance) and in the psychological sense of respect for documentary and its makers in a dummied-down media world, it is.

 

I concentrated on History docs, which thanks in large part to the participation of our home-grown researcher and thinker Elizabeth Klinck, was this year’s theme at Sunny Side.
