CINEMA POLITICA UofT - http://www.cinemapolitica.org/uoft
Cinema Politica UofT is an initiative of the Graduate Students' Union, University of Toronto. We screen films that challenge conventional narratives and that explore under-represented stories. Our film screenings aim to engage students and the community in critical issues surrounding equity and environmental justice. We seek to accomplish this by following each screening with a discussion about how the content of the film relates to our own experiences and what action we can take collectively.

Cinema Politica UofT is brought to you by:
