2017 Toronto Youth Shorts Film Festival — UNBOUND Program
August 12, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
The 2017 Toronto Youth Shorts Film Festival presents the UNBOUND screening program at 1:15PM on Saturday August 12th.
From the Toronto Youth Shorts Website:
These films celebrate the spirit of emphasizing characters caught between boundaries and the ways in which they navigate them. Some of the stories in this programme are rooted in the limits of the body, asking us to recast our understanding of ideas like “ability” and “disability.” Others draw from the boundaries of societal expectations – of what counts as beautiful, of whose voices should be heard, of who belongs in what spaces. Yet another group of films explores what happens when people set their own restraints, using them as a force for creativity and self-actualization. The philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau said that “The world of reality has its limits, [but] the world of imagination is boundless.” Together, these films capture a picture of the space in between.
