As part of THE NFB IN LIBRARIES, the Toronto Public Library – toronto Reference Library is offering free public screening of the following film for Black History Month:
Band of Exile (Yves Bisaillon | 1994 | 58 min)
Here in Toronto, four young Somali refugees are finishing high school. What did they bring with them? What did they find in Canada? Their testimonies, about us and about themselves, interspersed with newsreel footage and sequences of a theatrical creation in which they put all their soul, make them immediately endearing and overturn many prejudices held against refugees. A film that makes you want to get to know them better.
