photo Filmmaker-in-Residence: The Complete Collection
By Katerina Cizek
National Film Board of Canada

2 DVDs and a CD-ROM Featuring:

The 7 Interventions of Filmmaker-in-Residence: an 80-minute documentary film and special features

Filmmaker-in-Residence: The Films including Hand-Held, The Bicycle, The Interventionists, and Drawing From Life

Filmmaker-in-Residence Web documentary CD-Rom and resource materials

Everyone participates — everyone has a voice — and the message is revolutionary. Take one dynamic filmmaker; add a team nurses, doctors and community members on the frontlines of urban and global health; then introduce interventionist media — and you have Filmmaker-in-Residence, a new model for collaboration now recognized worldwide as a blueprint for positive change in the digital age.

The National Film Board of Canada placed media maker Katerina Cizek "in residence" at Toronto's inner-city St. Michael's Hospital, renowned for innovation in patient care and research. The result is a collection of multi-platform documentaries that prove digital storytelling can work as a tool for social action. Young, homeless mothers problem-solve through "video bridging." Community-based therapy and film animation intertwine. Throughout, doctors, nurses and media makers work together to create transformative tools.
