THE UNFINISHED BUSINESS OF FEMINISM IN CANADA</a>. The film documents the history of feminism and the (multiple) women's movements in Canada over the last several decades.</p> <p>Cho spent years researching and filming and it pays off: SATUS QUO is a powerful education on a topic too often ignored or subjugated by mainstream and corporate media. Cho's incredible use of archives and her choice in compelling interview subjects, combined with a fantastic soundscape, excellent editing and top-notch cinematography make for a documentary not to be missed.</p> </p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-feature"><legend>Blog Feature</legend><div class="field field-type-date field-field-feature-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-start">Mon, 03/18/2013</span><span class="date-display-separator"> - </span><span class="date-display-end">Fri, 04/19/2013</span> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-content-taxonomy field-field-blog-frontpage"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Post on Network Blog </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="https://www.cinemapolitica.org/blog/bloor/status-quo-screening-torontos-bloor-hot-docs-theatre-packs-house" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Aboriginal Abortion Bloor feminism Kaen Cho Missing and Murdered Post on Network Blog Toronto Violence Women Sat, 16 Feb 2013 02:28:00 +0000 bloor 5936 at https://www.cinemapolitica.org Cinema Politica at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema in Toronto https://www.cinemapolitica.org/blog/bloor/cinema-politica-bloor-hot-docs-cinema-toronto <div style="color: #645234; font-family: Georgia; font-size: 13px; line-height: 1.5em; margin: 0pt 0pt 1.3em; padding: 3px 0pt 0pt; text-align: left; vertical-align: top;"><img src="https://www.cinemapolitica.org/sites/www.cinemapolitica.org/files/resize/Bloor-Cinema-312x188.jpg" alt="Bloor Cinema" width="312" height="188" style="float: left; border: 1px solid black; margin: 4px;" />THIS JUST IN!!
