Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema

The acclaimed winner of the Best Canadian Feature Documentary Award at Hot Docs 2017, Unarmed Verses follows Francine Valentine, a 12-year-old Black girl who is just one of many people facing eviction from a low-income housing block in Toronto's north-east end due to the impending demolition of their home. With a creative spirit, love for art and perceptive point of view beyond her years, Francine and other neighbourhood children turn to creative expression, as they prepare to record music and poetry at a local studio. Director Charles Officer crafts a moving local coming-of-age story about community, adversity, economic disparity and identity that celebrates our bonds and ability to persevere.
