Toronto cinema to show movies from countries affected by US travel ban
A Toronto cinema is showing its solidarity with those who oppose Trump's anti-Muslim travel ban by screening films from the seven nations whose citizens were denied entry into the U.S.
Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema presents Ban This Series from March 6 to 8 and it features a collection of films from Libya, Yemen, Iran, Somalia, Syria, Iraq and Sudan.
"Over the past few weeks, we've struggled as a team to figure out how we can utilize the cinema to show work that will remind people that everybody has a story, all of which hold value and meaning," said Alan Black, managing director for Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema, in a press release.
All movies included in the series are free to attend and there will be opportunities before and after the screenings to donate to two non-profit organizations, including the National Council of Canadian Muslims and Canadian Journalists for Free Expression.
