In This Program


  1. TIGERSTYLE

    Rachel Lattin, Riani Singgih, Jordyn Romero, Elliot Powell, Paloma Young / SHORT FILMS / Scotland / Documentary / 10 mins
    Raj and his brother, Pops, make up the popular music duo Tigerstyle. Based in Glasgow, the brothers work as DJs and music producers, creating hip-hop bhangra fusion music. While Western music is centered around a partying culture, Tigerstyle aims to promote Sikh values in their music.

    After being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, Vancouver hip-hop artist Francis Arevalo harnessed the healing power of music.

  3. DRAWN TOGETHER: COMICS, DIVERSITY AND STEREOTYPES

    Harleen Singh / SHORT FILMS / USA / Documentary / 52 mins
    With a lively backdrop of superheroes, comic books, and animation, DRAWN TOGETHER: COMICS, DIVERSITY AND STEREOTYPES brings together three talented artists—a Sikh, a woman, and an African American—who are challenging the racist stereotyping endemic in America through their work.

  4. THE FLIP SIDE

    Val Wang / SHORT FILMS / Canada, China, USA / Documentary, Sports / 25 mins
    In this coming-of-age story, Daqi is a Chinese circus artist who leaves home at nine-years-old to train at an elite state-run circus academy. Restless from training, he leaves the comforts of his stable position to perform with Cirque du Soleil. When he collides with Montreal circus troupe 7 Fingers, Daqi finds a strength in himself that he never dreamed of. THE FLIP SIDE presents the increasingly globalized circus world, where disparate people and acrobatic cultures come together, clash, and ultimately transform each other.
