LIFT presents: The Madvo Collection Commissioning Project 50 mins --Introduced by Anna Kipervaser (AMI) In 2014, the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT) received a donation of a 200-reel collection of the films and outtakes of local documentary filmmaker Jacques Madvo. Madvo travelled the world from the 1960s to the 1980s, shooting 16mm footage that made its way into the People and Places documentaries he produced for TVO. The footage is a treasure trove of documentation of international culture and life from almost a half-century ago. With the assistance of an Initiatives Grant from the Canada Council for the Arts, LIFT commissioned eight films and videos that incorporate the Madvo collection footage as a starting point. Program 1 details below; Program 2 will screen in 2019. Program 1: Fanfare Fraser McCallum 9 min. Soy un ser cuyas raíces // I am a being whose roots Zoë Heyn-Jones 12 min.
