For the first time ever, documentary powerhouse Nettie Wild’s film collection is available online for your streaming pleasure!
Cinema Politica is honoured to offer The Nettie Wild Collection – featuring five of the director, writer and producer’s signature, award-winning, critically acclaimed works. Nettie Wild is one of Canada’s most internationally recognized and nationally celebrated documentary filmmakers. Her groundbreaking films have exposed realities within moments of social change, fleshing out her intense desire to speak truth to situations that she has been witness to throughout her career.
The Nettie Wild Collection represents 28 years of committed filmmaking from a maverick in the field who has documented civil war, Indigenous resistance, revolutions, drug addiction activism and more. At the Toronto International Film Festival’s 2018 Edition Wild will be in fact recognized for her unique and robust contribution to documentary by Telefilm and partners, and Cinema Politica is thrilled that four Wild classics—BLOCKADE, A PLACE CALLED CHIAPAS, A RUSTLING OF LEAVES: INSIDE THE PHILIPPINE REVOLUTION and FIX: STORY OF AN ADDICTED CITY—and her newest offering, KONELĪNE, are all available for streaming today, to help mark this high point in the auteur’s career.
