We Are Humainologie
The Spaces Between Us
In the past year, Humainologie has received four film fest awards and 20 festival selections for various films. During 2017, seven Humainologie films were on exhibit at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg. Take a look at the exhibit trailer, below.
Our exhibit 'under an umbrella we met', features 13 short films where you can step into the actual, worn shoes of the person you are watching. The initial series, produced in 2015, 'Faces of Islam' introduces the experiences and views of eight Muslims from different parts of the world. A further 'under an umbrella we met' film series sharing the stories of five Indigenous Youth in Alberta, Canada was completed in 2017. We are seeking funding support for a third series focusing on non-conforming gender identities.
The experience of wearing the shoes of the person in the film helps to intensify the connection between the viewer and the film subject.
Please contact us if you are interested in bringing the experience to your site. The exhibit can be transported to locations both within and outside of Canada.
