A series of short films:

Song for Cuba- This short experimental documentary about memory and music, follows a young Cuban couple charting a new course for their lives on an island in the North Atlantic.
Something in the Air- A 2001 documentary about the dangers of pesticides used by potato farmers in Prince Edward Island. Filmmaker Sylvie Dauphinais made this documentary to issue a wake-up call about an environmental crisis that put the ill, the elderly and the young at great risk. Includes some subtitles.
Island Green- This short documentary takes a look at the changing face of PEI’s agricultural industry. Once famous for its spuds and red mud, this tiny island province now has higher than average cancer and respiratory illness rates. Is there a link to industrialized farming? Rather than dwelling on PEI’s worrisome monocropping practices, Island Green dares to ask: What if PEI went entirely organic?
