YYC Colours: A documentary addressing Racism in Calgary

resource image

YYC Colours is a documentary that was created to start discussions about racism in Calgary and Canada in general. The film took over a year and a half to produce. We spoke to hundreds of people and over 100 interviews were recorded through a community call to action that contributed to the content of the film. The goal is to have people view the film and start having honest conversations about racism and privilege in our society. The subject of race can be very touchy, but if we as a society don't engage in the conversation, understand the problem and start with solutions at the systemic level that involve BIPOC Canadians, racism will never end.

The documentary also touches on hate crimes, privilege, white fragility, bigotry, xenophobia and islamophobia.
