Though better known for directing features like the KCFF’s opening night film MEDITATION PARK, Mina Shum recently proved her skills as a maker of documentaries with this highly acclaimed and all too timely look at an anti-racist student protest that rocked Montreal in 1969. NINTH FLOOR sheds new light on the events at Sir George Williams University, where allegations about racism toward students from the West Indies by a professor led to conflict and controversy, culminating in the largest student occupation in Canadian history and a violent response by local riot police. Thanks to her film’s savvy use of new interviews and archival material, Shum reveals ugly realities of race, privilege and power that some Canadians may be as reluctant to face now as they were then.
