In this preview of Cinema Politica’s fall series, we speak with Svetla Turnin, executive director of the political activist film series, hosted every Monday evening at Concordia University. We also speak with the director of this Monday night’s film, After The Last River by Victoria Lean. The film follows local activists, community leaders and community members who are in opposition to the environmental destruction of their home, the Attawapiskat First Nation, as a result of diamond mining and other pursuits.

Concordia students can also loan or stream previously screened Cinema Politica films through the Concordia Library’s Cinema Politica Selections.

This interview was produced by Claudia Edwards.
