Shira Avni is an artist-filmmaker and Associate Professor of Film Animation at Concordia University in Montreal. Her films incorporate documentary, animation, and personal memoir to address questions of disability, difference, and social justice in ways that gently break down the viewer’s habitual barriers, and have been screened in over 100 festivals worldwide. Avni’s current research explores maternal health and post-partum trauma through a combination of animation and documentary media and collaborative, community-based animation filmmaking.
