This fall we are presenting four sessions on social justice issues, combining a short documentary film or video together with comment and discussion led by a guest or guests with expertise in the specific field covered. The sessions run from one and a half to two hours 

Our first, exceptional, session was on Wednesday, September 20 featuring Award Winning Victoria film-maker, Judy Jackson and her remarkable and moving film, “Where Can We Live in Peace?” This was followed by an inspirational session on Wednesday, October 4 led by John Borrows on the significance of Indigenous legal orders in the Canadian constitution and legal system  

Please note our next two linked sessions: 

Wednesday, October 25 and November 15, “What is Democracy?” an NFB film in two parts by Astra Taylor with commentary and discussion by our own Jamie Lawson, Associate Professor of Political Science at UVic and Jim Tully, Emeritus Professor of Political Science at UVic and one of Canada’s leading political thinkers, not least on Indigenous/settler relations.
