Cinema Politica is a national film series that features topical documentaries on different challenges we face as Canadians and global citizens in the early 21st century. It has the tagline “screening truth to power”.
On Wednesday, Feb. 18 the Regina chapter will be screening the 2012 documentary The End of Immigration? It’s by Montreal filmmakers Marie Boti and Malcolm Guy, and it takes a critical view of abuses that have cropped up with the temporary foreign worker program where people are brought to the country to work marginal jobs with virtually none of the legal protections that Canadian citizens have. The free screening will be held at the Artful Dodger at 7 p.m.
On Wednesday, March 18 another Cinema Politica screening will be held at the same venue at 7 p.m. It will feature Swiss filmmaker Urs Schnell’s 2012 documentary Bottled Life: The Truth About Nestle’s Business With Water.
Here’s the trailer for The End of Immigration:
