How can family memories inform solidarity? How can avant-garde voices engaging the past contribute to activism today? How can private archives queer public histories? How do yesterday’s photographs become tomorrow’s pictures?

DARC is proud to present “Foggy: Palestine Solidarity, Cinema & The Archive” in collaboration with Cinema Politica. “Foggy” is a collection of recent short films that stage hybrid acts of montage, juxtaposition, re-enactment and dialogue, exploring the theme of solidarity. The program will begin with a short introduction by a Toronto-Palestine Film Festival artist in residence.
