The Simone de Beauvoir Institute is proud to host a screening of Our Dance of Revolution: The History of Toronto's Black Queer Community followed by a discussion with the film's director Phillip Pike.

Please note that in order to see the film, attendees must register early to receive the streaming link by email.

Phillip Pike is an emerging documentary filmmaker. As a graduate of McGill University’s Faculty of Law, Phillip’s journey of personal and professional discovery has taken him from a career creating change as a community activist and human rights lawyer to a career creating change through storytelling as an independent documentary filmmaker.

He is a graduate of the Documentary Filmmaking Institute (School of Creative Arts & Animation, Seneca College, Toronto). He also received intensive training in video production at Trinity Square Video in Toronto and the Bay Area Video Coalition in San Francisco.

Completed in 2003, his first documentary, Songs of Freedom, tells compelling stories of courage and hope of gays and lesbians living in Jamaica. Critically acclaimed and well received by audiences, Songs of Freedom was an official selection at several film festivals and was acquired for broadcast across North America on a specialty TV channel. Our Dance of Revolution is Phillip’s third film and second feature.

Part of the Testimony: Visual and Embodied Gateways to Black Histories event series hosted by the Simone de Beauvoir Institute and co-hosted by the Department of History and the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling.
