CATHARSIS Film Screening

Saturday, March 18th, 2023
Burnswest Theatre, Fort Calgary
750 9 Avenue SE Calgary AB T2G 5E1

CATHARSIS is a Telus STORYHIVE-funded docu-series created and directed by Sarah Uwadiae. Filmed here in Mohkinstsis - Calgary, this female-led documentary tackles the stigmatization of mental health and therapy in many Black and African communities with a focus on immigrants from those communities. It seeks to create a safe space for African immigrants to process racial trauma through counseling. 

This is an opportunity to enjoy an evening of live music, spoken word poetry, and film. There will be a panel afterward to engage with the filmmaker about the creative process and the intention and reality behind the film. 

This is a can't-miss event that seeks to inspire conversations about mental health in African and Black immigrant communities in Canada, demystify the process of therapy, and bring accessibility to culturally appropriate mental health resources to the forefront.

Join us to screen this documentary and experience a collective Catharsis in Burnswest Theatre, Fort Calgary at 7 pm.

Admission includes a drink, red carpet, and fresh hors d'oeuvres! The dress code for this event is "Red Carpet Classy" (whatever that means to you)!
