Additional Screenings Announced!
DOXA Documentary Film Festival, Western Canada's largest documentary film festival, returns to present its 21st edition in theatres and streaming online May 5 thru May 15, 2022!
Colin Askey's Love in the Time of Fentanyl will screen for a third time on Sunday, May 15 at 6:45 PM, SFU Djavad Mowafaghian Cinema.
Love in the Time of Fentanyl is an intimate observation of the Overdose Prevention Society over a number of years, witnessing the exhausting but essential work required to keep the site running and the people dedicated to its continuance. A group of misfits, artists and drug users operate this renegade safe injection site in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. Love in the Time of Fentanyl is a crucial film from director Colin Askey—one that explores, with considerable care and compassion, the frontlines of the ongoing drug-poisoning epidemic in this city.
We've seen packed houses at each previous screening of Love in the Time of Fentanyl, so this is not to be missed! Click here to purchase tickets for this additional screening.
Hà Lệ Diễm’s Children of the Mist will screen for a third time on Sunday, May 15 at 6:45 PM, The Cinematheque.
Twelve-year-old Di is reaching a generational cusp. Nearly able to pull away from the archaic marriage traditions of the rural Hmong people, she wants instead to continue her education—but it's not easy. Filmmaker Hà Lệ Diễm's fly-on-the-wall film skillfully documents three years in the life of her friend Di's family; at times both joyful and haunting.
