History… and the hope for a new and brighter future is the theme of these films whereby the protagonists have lived through the horrors of war and yet their resilient human spirits bring them hope for a better future through their connection to water. These films are presented in partnership with the Silver Wave Film Festival.
Silver Wave Film Festival
The annual Silver Wave Film Festival features something for everyone. This year’s event offers a showcase of multicultural, international, French and English programming of all genres and lengths and a comprehensive industry series which brings experienced and emerging producers and filmmakers together.
Silver Wave is jam packed with exciting events and programming with diversity and depth. The Festival is the brainchild of the board and staff at the New Brunswick Filmmakers’ Co-operative and is the staff’s volunteer labour.
The divers of Mostar fly from their bridge from generations, every day, risking their lives. They've been keeping on this tradition for the last 200 years, even when the bridge was destroyed by the war. Some keep in their minds and bodies the signs of conflict and pain, while the young ones look at the future, looking for the perfect dive. An exclusive and intimate look in the lives of a group of men, incarnating the feelings and the story of their country.
KWANDO tells the story of a young Angolan fisherman, haunted by his past as a child soldier and unsure of his future, who joins a team of international scientists to explore one of Angola’s last unexplored rivers. Through hardships, scientific discoveries and his own growing interest in birds, he finds hope for a new future for his homeland.
