Critical Writing Index

Violence, distrust eased by filmmaker

by Andre Picard

The Globe and Mail, May 10, 1994

Andre Picard writes about Shanti Thakur's documentary film Crossing Borders co-produced with Leith Hamilton and Bill Kerrigan, and how its production played a critical role in facilitating dialogue and greater understanding between different cultural groups within the community affected by a violent incident that took place outside the Black Community Council of Quebec in the summer of 1991. Picard's article announces that the film's airing on Vision TV is timely given the more recent 'Just Desserts shooting' in Toronto.
