On February 24, filmmaker Charles Officer returns to the Canadian Film Forum to present his award-winning feature, Akilla’s Escape. Filmmaker and alumna Yazmeen Kanji (HBA ’20 Innis, Cinema Studies) will moderate the Q&A that follows.

In a crime-noir about the urban child-soldier, Akilla Brown captures a fifteen-year-old Jamaican boy in the aftermath of an armed robbery. Over one gruelling night, Akilla confronts a cycle of generational violence he thought he escaped.
