The usage of monuments dates back millennia as an ode to history and important people who have passed away. But they don't always represent the best parts of history or even the truth about our history.
New Monuments is an hour-long original film that blends activism and art around issues related to Indigenous, Black, and People of Colour (IBPOC) communities with music, while tracing the story of Canada from its earliest history all the way up to the present day. What does the future hold? Over 40 internationally recognized IBPOC Toronto talents will give us an exhilarating tour of history, working alongside homegrown talents. The movie will premiere at Luminato Festival Toronto and will be streamed on CBC Gem on October 15, 2021.
