Legacy Voices 2 & Café Daughter | Date: February 21, 2024 | Time: 7:30 p.m. | Location: Film.Ca, Oakville | OFFA | Oakville Festivals of Film & Art | Sheridan Alumni | Stay ConnectedJoin Sheridan Alumni and the Oakville Festivals of Film and Art (OFFA) for an enlightening evening celebrating both Black History Month and Indigenous heritage, with a screening of Legacy Voices 2: New Generation and Café Daughter. The films will be followed by a Q&A with Sheridan graduates and other special guests.

Legacy Voices 2: New Generation, directed by Sheridan graduate Akil McKenzie, offers firsthand accounts from Halton community elders on their experiences as early Black settlers in Ontario.

Afterwards, immerse yourself in the powerful narrative of Café Daughter. Directed by Mohawk filmmaker Shelley Niro and based on the play by Kenneth T. Williams, Café Daughter is a coming-of-age story about Yvette Wong, a young Chinese Cree girl in 1960s Saskatchewan. Inspired by true events, the story follows Wong as she embraces her Cree identity amidst prejudice, while also pursuing her dream of becoming a doctor.

Join us after the films for a live Q&A session with directors Akil McKenzie, Bachelor of Film and Television ‘18 (Legacy Voices 2), Shelley Niro (Café Daughter), and Sheridan grad and sound designer Daniel Samaan, Media Arts ‘15 (Café Daughter).
