// Interview

Ali Kazimi, director of CP film CONTINUOUS JOURNEY, was recently interviewed by independent online journal Democracy Now about Canadian Prime Minister’s official apology for the Komagata Maru incident.
A Montreal documentary festival was at the centre of a controversy over the representation of Inuit in one of their films, and a Nunavut-based filmmaker has much to say on the topic.
Carleton Cinema Politica screened BANANAS!* on November 3 with a lovely audience and plenty of questions unanswered. We were hoping to have Director Fredrik Gertten join us via Skype for a Q&A but his busy schedule (and time zone) would have required him to answer questions at 2:30 in the morning after a long flight. Instead we had a wide ranging and productive discussion but promised the audience that we would ask Fredrik some of the questions that came up via email. Below are some of the questions and Fredrik's responses. We also were able to get a video Q&A from a screening in Australia. We'll be posting it very soon so stay tuned! Special thanks to Fredrik Gertten, all the Cinema Politica volunteers and our audience!
