Hooligan Sparrow

Co-presented by Human Rights Watch, Hooligan Sparrow follows courageous activist Ye Haiyan who risks arrest and imprisonment to protest the abuse of girls and women by Chinese authorities. Filmmaker Nanfu Wang documents every step of the journey, as Ye Haiyan launches a campaign on behalf of six schoolgirls who were raped by their principle, and becomes labelled an enemy of the state.

Screening April 28, 9:30PM at TIFF Bell LightboxHooligan_Sparrow_2

Future Baby

Written and directed by Maria Arlamovsky, Future Baby explores the future of baby making in the fast-changing landscape of human reproduction. What are the ethics of designer babies? What role should a donor play? Who owns the embryos in the case of divorce? Both supporters and skeptics will appreciate this thought-provoking film that thoroughly examines all sides of in vitro fertilization.

Screening May 2, 1:00PM at TIFF Bell LightboxFuture_Baby_5
