No One is Illegal - Toronto Presents:

Whose Borders?

An evening of politics, popcorn and picture shows!

Featuring:

*Enemy Alien (dir. Konrad Aderer, 81 mins.): The gripping story of the fight to free Farouk Abdel-Muhti, a Palestinian-born human rights activist detained in a post-9/11 sweep of Muslim immigrants. Told through the eyes of the filmmaker, the grandson of Japanese Americans held in internment camps during World War II, this documentary provides an intimate look at detention regimes past and present.

*Kanawayandan D'aaki - Protecting Our Land (Praxis Pictures, 12 mins): Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug (KI) First Nation has governed and cared for their indigenous homelands since time immemorial. This is a short film about their ongoing struggle against the theft of their land and resources by resource extraction companies and the government, and a call for action, solidarity and support.
