TIFF Collection

  • China Blue
    China Blue | Director: Micha X. Peled  
    Year of production: 2005| Country of production: USA | Language: Chinese, English (with full English subtitles available)

    China Blue takes us inside a blue-jeans factory, where two teenage girls, Jasmine and Orchid, are trying to survive the harsh working environment. Their lives intersect that of the film’s other protagonist and factory owner, Mr. Lam. Providing perspectives from both the top and bottom levels of the factory’s hierarchy, this film brings complex issues of globalization to the human level. Like millions before her, Jasmine leaves her home village for a far-away factory job. Her initial excitement to be able to help her family quickly melts away as she is overwhelmed by the long work hours and the delays in pay.

  • Fight Like Soldiers, Die Like Children
    Fight Like Soldiers, Die Like Children | Director: Patrick Reed  
    Year of production: 2012| Country of production: Canada | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    When you’ve been to hell and back, how do you shake the memories? This question has haunted General Roméo Dallaire since 1994, when he was UN Force Commander during the Rwandan genocide, explored in the award-winning documentary “Shake Hands with the Devil”.
    Now Dallaire has found a reason to live: embarking on a global mission to eradicate the use of child soldiers. Will Dallaire succeed where others have failed? Or will he once again be forced to look on as the world turns away?

  • Shake Hands With the Devil
    Shake Hands With the Devil | Director: Peter Raymont  
    Year of production: 2004| Country of production: Canada | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    In 100 nightmarish days more than 800,000 men, women, and children were brutally murdered during the Rwandan genocide. The victims were Tutsi and moderate Hutus who supported them. Canadian General Roméo Dallaire was thrown into a country he barely understood, leading a small contingent of largely ill-equipped troops who did not want to be there. Unsupported by U.N. headquarters, Dallaire and his handful of soldiers were incapable of stopping the killing. This experience led to Dallaire’s own life tragedy as he dealt with the psychological fallout of witnessing a genocide he was powerless to stop.

  • Guantanamo’s Child – The Omar Khadr Story
    Guantanamo’s Child – The Omar Khadr Story | Director: Patrick Reed  
    Year of production: 2015| Country of production: Canada | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    An intimate portrait of how a teenager from a Toronto suburb became one of the first U.S. war crimes trial since the prosecution of Nazi commanders. Khadr is the only juvenile ever tried for war crimes. It gives Omar Khadr the opportunity to speak for himself on camera, for the first time.
    The documentary takes us from his childhood traveling between a Canadian suburb and Peshawar at the height of the jihad against the Soviets, to Afghanistan and the homes of Al Qaeda’s elite, into the notorious U.S. prisons at Bagram and Guantanamo Bay and back again to Canada.

  • I Am Here
    I Am Here | Director: Lixin Fan  
    Year of production: 2014| Country of production: China | Language: Chinese, Mandarin (with full English subtitles available)

    The summer of 2013 saw a group of young boys enter a Chinese TV talent show called Super Boy, hoping to be catapulted to fame. Here we accompany the young candidates on the grueling run-up to the grand finale. The intensive preparation, culminating in a two-month boot camp, tests their self-image as well as their singing and dancing skills. Standing at the cusp of adulthood in a highly competitive society, the competitors wrestle with some tough questions: What kind of person are you? What do you want to be?

  • The Giant Buddhas
    The Giant Buddhas | Director: Christian Frei  
    Year of production: 2005| Country of production: Switzerland | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    In February of 2001, the Taliban issued an edict that all non-Islamic statues in Afghanistan be destroyed. By March, the Buddhas had been blown to bits. At 53 meters high, one of them was the tallest representation of Buddha in the world. International outrage ensued and the hypocrisy of this is one of the subjects of Frei’s beautiful inquiry. The result is an essay about terrorism and tolerance, ignorance and identity, fanaticism and faith.

  • Unwanted Witness
    Unwanted Witness | Director: Juan José Lozano  
    Year of production: 2008| Country of production: France, Switzerland | Language: Spanish (with full English subtitles available)

    Hollman Morris is an internationally acclaimed journalist whose weekly television show, Contravía, boldly confronts the violence that ravages his homeland of Colombia. Though he has won prestigious awards abroad, at home he is faced with death threats and intimidation, and this puts a strain on his family life.

  • My Toxic Baby
    My Toxic Baby | Director: Min Sook Lee  
    Year of production: 2009| Country of production: Canada | Language: English (with full English subtitles available)

    A personal, introspective look at the chemical-laden environment we live in today, something filmmaker Min Sook Lee hardly thought about until Song Ji, her daughter, was born. BPA. Lead. Melamine. Lee brings us this intimate and alarming look at the numerous toxins found in baby’s products and environment.
    As a new mom, Lee shares her anxieties as she struggles to protect her young daughter, Song Ji, from our chemical world.
