NFB Film Screening: Forbidden Love
This feature documentary delves into the rich history of Canadian queer women’s experiences in the mid-20th century. Compelling, often hilarious and always rebellious, the women interviewed in this film recount stories about their search for the places where openly gay women gathered in urban centres. Contemporary interviews, archival footage, and a stylized fictional narrative based on the pulp novels of the 1950s are woven throughout this simultaneously funny, heartbreaking, and empowering film. Forbidden Love brings an important and empowering history of lesbian sexuality in Canada out of the closet. This film contains scenes of nudity and/or sexuality. Viewer discretion is advised. 2014, 84 min 35s

NFB Film Screening: Ariel
Ariel is a living embodiment of the ongoing duel between man and machine. When he was just 33, his legs were shredded by an industrial dough mixer in Mendoza, Argentina. But from that point on, he began to rediscover the meaning of freedom, devoting his life to rebuilding his broken identity, keeping his family and designing his own artificial legs. In this intimate and metaphoric portrait, director Laura Bari (Antoine) melds eight years of Ariel’s singular transhumanity. Juxtaposing daily life with inner, dreamlike worlds, Bari pushes the boundaries between the real and the imaginary.

NFB Film Screening: Out of Mind, Out of Sight
Out of Mind, Out of Sight: What happens to people who suffer from mental illnesses and commit violent crimes? Some are sent to forensic psychiatric hospitals - once called asylums for the criminally insane - where they disappear from public view for years. Emmy award-winning filmmaker John Kastner gained unprecedented access to one such facility, the Brockville Mental Health Centre. He follows the treatment of patients struggling to gain control over their lives, so they can return to a society that often fears and demonizes them.
