Celebrating the work of established and emerging documentary practitioners from Ryerson University’s Master of Fine Arts program in Documentary Media.
Non ti scordar di me
Non ti scordar di me is an allegorical story about the darkest period in Italian-Canadian history: an era which saw members of an ethnic community held in remote internment camps by the Canadian government during World War II. Reexamined through photography, remnants and landscapes express the longing, isolation and spiritual defeat characteristic of camp life among those guilty of nothing more than cultural heritage. While barbed wire held these men in isolated wildernesses, the real weaponry used against them is revealed through a visual, performative and experiential forensic analysis.
Sandro Camilli is an emerging Toronto-based documentary artist. He uses art to question the nature of power and the direction of discourse between the subject and viewer. He received a B.Sc. in Geography from the University of Victoria in 2007 and is currently pursuing an M.F.A in Documentary Media at Ryerson University. He has been exhibited in Toronto and South Korea and was the recipient of the Hamish Kippen Excellence in Arts Award in 2013.
