Hot Docs commemorates Canada’s 150th anniversary of confederation with In the Name of All Canadians, a compilation of six short documentaries inspired by Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

From Indigenous rights to multiculturalism to the controversial ‘notwithstanding clause,’ participating filmmakers have each selected a specific aspect of the charter to explore, looking at how it resonates in the stories of their fellow Canadians.

Last Resort from Jennifer Bowen-Allen (NSI IndigiDocs) and L’inspecteur from Janelle Wookey (NSI Business for Producers) are included among the six shorts.

In the Name of All Canadians premiered in Toronto on June 28 and continues to screen over the next few weeks. See the schedule and buy tickets.
