CBC to rebroadcast local short films

A collection of independent local films curated by UWindsor professor Mike Stasko will be televised at 7 p.m. Saturday, September 1, on CBC Television.

It’s an encore showing of the Absolutely Windsor episode “Windsor Shorts,” which first aired August 11. The program will feature:

  • The drama Tommy, produced and directed by Theodore Bezaire, which follows a father and son heading back to nature to bury their beloved pet turtle, “Tommy.” They’re ready to say goodbye, but is Tommy?
  • The documentary Rose City Artists, directed by Braunte Petric, a look at some of the region’s top young recording artists, and a visit to the studio where they bring their art to life.
  • The thriller Snow, directed by Elliott Hale and produced by Gemma Cunial, set in a dystopian world where snow has become a virus, forcing a brother and sister to survive the elements alone in their family home.
  • The documentary 8mm Installation, produced and directed by Mitchell Bouchard, which invites audiences to look on as a grandson screens old home movies to his grandmother of her long-since passed-away husband.

Stasko notes many of the filmmakers have ties to the University as students or alumni; all of the productions feature talents from the region. CBC Television is broadcast on channel nine and available as channel 10 on Cogeco cable.
