We spotlight three thought-provoking short films from the B/OLD exhibit.

Elizabeth Miller will screen and discuss her film “Moles”, a reflective film exploring the personal and technological changes in the context of aging, skin cancer risks, and the evolving narratives of body and identity. Wendy Allen, who has been interested in oral history and digital storytelling since she retired, will present “Souvenirs de nos Quartiers: Mile End”. Sam Thulin and Kim Sawchuk will present “Zoom Zoom”, which weaves interviews from community sector workers living through the pandemic to paint a picture of resilience.

The speakers will be invited to discuss their experiences making the film, delving into how their films and filmmaking practices reveal insights on aging, technological shifts, and the interplay between past, present, and future perspectives.

How can you participate? Join us in person or online by registering for the Zoom Meeting or watching live on YouTube.
