Being a getaway driver means that life is always uncertain. For one young man named Baby, however, it's all he's ever known and he's excellent at it. With prodigious driving skills and a knack for always avoiding danger, Baby suddenly finds himself at a loss when he falls for a girl who works as a local waitress. Suddenly, he realizes that there could be a life outside of crime for him. However, his bosses do not agree with this sentiment. And in order to conquer them, he'll need to put all of his brilliant talents to use.

Three sisters and a brother, adopted as infants into separate families across North America, meet together for the first time in this deeply moving documentary by director Tasha Hubbard.

Removed from their young Dene mother’s care as part of Canada’s infamous Sixties Scoop, Betty Ann, Esther, Rosalie and Ben were four of the 20,000 Indigenous children taken from their families between 1955 and 1985, to be either adopted into white families or to live in foster care. As the four siblings piece together their shared history, their connection deepens, bringing laughter with it, and their family begins to take shape.

November 23, 2017

The Road Forward, a musical documentary by Marie Clements, connects a pivotal moment in Canada’s civil rights history—the beginnings of Indian Nationalism in the 1930s—with the powerful momentum of First Nations activism today. The Road Forward’s stunningly shot musical sequences, performed by an ensemble of some of Canada’s finest vocalists and musicians, seamlessly connect past and present with soaring vocals, blues, rock, and traditional beats. A rousing tribute to the fighters for First Nations rights, a soul-resounding historical experience, and a visceral call to action.

Close

November 25, 2017

When your school has an evil principal, it can be difficult to achieve anything. Luckily, two students come up with an outrageous idea that actually seems to work in their favor; they hypnotize their principal and make him into a kind of superhero. Clad only in his underwear, and the requisite cape, Captain Underpants is so much more noble than Mr. Krupp could ever be. However, it doesn't seem as if this ruse is going to be able to last a long time, and there may be stark consequences for the students’ bold actions.
