Lost Stories Film Festival

 

Tuesday, March 6, 2018 - 18:00 to 21:00
Speaker: 
Ronald Rudin

*Please note that this event will take place in the Department of Art History of Concordia (EV 3.760 - 1515 Sainte-Catherine West, Montreal QC).

The Lost Stories Project collects little known stories about Canadian history, gives them to artists who create works of public art, and documents the process through short documentary films. With support from the federal government’s Canada 150 Fund, four new episodes have been created, spanning Canada. The resulting documentary films (being screened in public for the first time) were created in collaboration with the communities involved. The films provide an opportunity to hear the voices of people with relatively little power: First Nations, Inuit, Acadians, people with disabilities or disease, and immigrants of colour. The screening of the four new films will be followed by a Q&A.

Ronald Rudin is a professor of History at Concordia University, a long-time affiliate of COHDS, and director of the Lost Stories Project. He is an award-winning author of seven books, and producer of seven documentary films, including the four being screened at this event. These films reflect his interest in understanding how the past is represented in public space. In addition, he is actively engaged in research dealing with the environmental history of Atlantic Canada.
