What is Democracy?

If we want to live in a democracy, we must first ask what the word even means.

Director Astra Taylor’s idiosyncratic, philosophical journey spans millennia and continents: from ancient Athens’ groundbreaking experiment in self-government to capitalism’s roots in medieval Italy; from modern-day Greece grappling with financial collapse and a mounting refugee crisis to the United States reckoning with its racist past and the growing gap between rich and poor.

Jordan River Anderson, The Messenger

Jordan River Anderson, The Messenger

It took one little boy to ensure that thousands of First Nations and Inuit children can today receive the same standard of social, health and education services as the rest of the Canadian population.

Filmed in centres of political power, in First Nations communities and at public demonstrations, Jordan River Anderson, The Messenger provides a forum in which the voices of parents, caregivers and their legal representatives can all be heard.
