Location: Innis Town Hall (2 Sussex Av.) (2 Sussex Av.) - Toronto


In its 9th year, SAVAC‘s Monitor 9: New South Asian Short Film and Video is an annual short film and video screening program that showcases new and innovative work by artists from Canada and internationally. Monitor 9 is a unique platform for independent work that brings together poignant films and videos that explore bodies in flow. Curator, Nahed Mansour, employs the notion of global flows, through which the artists negotiate various mediascapes, technoscapes, financescapes, ethnoscapes and ideoscapes in their work. “The images depicted in Streams, Torrents, and Waves share a familiarity with histories of colonial and imperial rule, gesturing to artists who find fuel in past and present horrors to create alternate readings of the personal, political and geographic spaces they choose to, or are forced to, inhabit,” states Mansour in her curatorial essay.

Curated by Nahed Mansour
