    This 1996 documentary takes a nostalgic ride through history to present the experiences of Black sleeping-car porters who worked on Canada's railways from the early 1900s through the 1960s. There was a strong sense of pride among these men and they were well-respected by their community. Yet, harsh working conditions prevented them from being promoted to other railway jobs until finally, in 1955, porter Lee Williams took his fight to the union.

    Claiming discrimination under the Canada Fair Employment Act, the Black workers won their right to work in other areas. Interviews, archival footage and the music of noted jazz musician Joe Sealy (whose father was a porter) combine to portray a fascinating history that might otherwise have been forgotten.

    En 1937, des dizaines de milliers d'Haïtiens et de Dominicains d'origine haïtienne ont été exterminés par l'armée dominicaine sur la seule base du racisme à l'encontre des Noirs. Des décennies plus tard, en 2013, la Cour suprême de la République dominicaine retire la citoyenneté à toute personne ayant des parents haïtiens, avec effet rétroactif jusqu'en 1929, rendant ainsi plus de 200 000 personnes apatrides. Le nouveau documentaire de la réalisatrice Michèle Stephenson suit la campagne d'une jeune avocate du nom de Rosa Iris, qui lutte contre la corruption des élus et pour la protection du droit à la citoyenneté pour tous.

    In 1937, tens of thousands of Haitians and Dominicans of Haitian descent were exterminated by the Dominican army on the basis of anti-black racism. Fast-forward to 2013: the Dominican Republic's Supreme Court stripped the citizenship of anyone with Haitian parents, retroactive to 1929, rendering more than 200,000 people stateless.  Director Michèle Stephenson's new documentary follows the grassroots campaign of a young attorney named Rosa Iris, as she challenges electoral corruption and fights to protect the right to citizenship for all people.

    2020, 95 minutes, French and Creole with either English or French subtitles / en français et en créole avec les sous titres en anglais ou en français.
