Artist' Talk with Chris Dainty

October 8th, 2019

FREE ADMISSION - OCTOBER 24, 5 p.m. - IN ENGLISH

The ’NFB in collaboration with the Sommets du cinéma d’animation are pleased to invite you to the Artist' Talk with Chris Dainty.

Based on the art of Shannon Jamieson, Shannon Amen unearths the frantic, passionate, and pained expressions of a young woman overwhelmed by guilt and anxiety as she struggles to reconcile her sexual identity with her religious faith. Written and directed by Jamieson’s friend, Chris Dainty, the film is a multi-layered memoir that fuses archival footage and an array of animation techniques (including icemation) to reconstruct the complexity, instability, and sorrow that Shannon struggled with — issues that torment other LGBTQIA + youth like her who face discrimination.
