MLJFF Presents : The Forbidden Reel by Ariel Nasr

April 13th 5:30pm - 11:55pm via XerbTV

Driven to create amidst war and chaos, Afghan filmmakers gave birth to an extraordinary national cinema. Driven to destroy, Taliban extremists set out to torch that legacy. Marveling in the beauty and fragile power of movies, Afghan-Canadian director Ariel Nasr crafts a thrilling and utterly original story of modern Afghanistan.

Post Screening Presentation:

Sergeo Kirby - Filmmaker and Producer

Sergeo is part of the ageless wave of activist filmmakers.

Some notable films he has directed include:
Student Politics: A one hour documentary about the realities of student activism at Concordia University
Wal-Town (NFB/Radio-Canada/TVO): A road trip expose on Wal-Mart’s effects on small towns in Canada.
Merge Left: A 16mm short experimental piece on travel and time.

Sergeo co-founded LoadedPictures, an independent documentary and dramatic film company where he produced:
Roadsworth (TeleQuebec/Bravo) and H2Oil (Global/ Discovery/Sundance) among other films.

Sergeo works on social and political documentaries that he hopes will challenge audiences to rethink our contemporary world.
