Marda Loop Justice Film Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary

Friday 13th, November 2015 / 17:03
By Sarah Kitteringham

CALGARY — Since their inception in 2006, the Marda Loop Justice Film Festival has been surging in growth and influence. From their origins as a three-day festival with two venues to their current incarnate as a six-day festival in four venues, they’ve kept true to their mantra to share “human rights, environmental, and socially significant documentary films” with the public 100 per cent free of charge thanks to their sponsors.

For the 2015 rendition of the event, the programmers selected from a pool of 900 filmmakers from 91 countries, eventually selecting 21 films. In addition to the film screening, each event includes a post film discussion with the filmmaker or subject experts. This year, our top three picks include:

The Shore Break

Created in South Africa and screened in the Xhosa language with English subtitles, The Shore Break is a 2014 documentary directed and produced by Odette Geldenhuys and Ryley Grunenwald. Featuring “arresting cinematography, beautiful sand animation, and original music,” the documentary focuses on two cousins who are battling over a projected mining project in tribal territory. The movie screens on Wednesday, November 18th at 7 p.m. at CPL Central – John Dutton Theatre.

Deep Web

This American film focuses on Ross William Ulbricht, the controversial entrepreneur who created and operated the online black market Silk Road. “The film explores how the brightest minds and thought leaders behind the Deep Web are now caught in the cross-hairs of the battle for control of a future inextricably linked to technology, with our digital rights hanging in the balance.” The movie screens on Thursday, November 19th at River Park Church.

Human Harvest

Focusing on the ongoing practice of forced live organ harvesting in China, this harrowing film directed and produced by Leon Lee centres on “Nobel Peace Prize nominees David Matas and David Kilgour [uncovering] one of the world’s worst crimes against humanity.” David Kilgour will be in attendance for a post screening talk. The movie screens on Saturday, November 21st at River Park Church.
