Filmmaker-in-Residence: The Complete Collection
Everyone participates – everyone has a voice – and the message is revolutionary.
Take one dynamic filmmaker; add a team of nurses, doctors and community members on the front lines in urban and global health; then introduce interventionist media—and you have Filmmaker-in-Residence, a new model for collaboration now recognized worldwide as a blueprint for positive change in the digital age.
The National Film Board of Canada placed media maker Katerina Cizek “in residence” at Toronto’s inner-city St. Michael’s Hospital, renowned for innovation in patient care and research. The result is a collection of multi-platform documentaries that prove digital storytelling can work as a tool for social action.
Young, homeless mothers problem-solve through “videobridging.” Community-based care saves lives in southern Africa. Suicide intervention therapy and film animation intertwine. Throughout, doctors, nurses and media-makers work together to create transformative tools.
Filmmaker-in-Residence: The Complete Collection includes two DVDs and a CD-ROM edition of the web-doc www.nfb.ca/filmmakerinresidence and over eight hours of bonus material.
