A uniquely affecting and perceptive documentary by Charles Officer that won top honours at Hot Docs last year and a place in TIFF Canada’s Top Ten, UNARMED VERSES is first and foremost a portrait of Francine Valentine, a thoughtful youngster growing up in a low-income Toronto housing block earmarked for destruction.  Yet her story becomes a means for Officer to explore a huge array of wider themes, from the impact of urban-renewal schemes on families and communities, to the hierarchies of class, race and privilege that many Canadians prefer not to acknowledge, to the value of creative expression.  All that adds up to a vital and timely film that feels both acutely personal and deeply resonant.

“Few Canadian films have captured the power of raw, youthful artistic expression in the same way as Charles Officer’s moving documentary Unarmed Verses.” — Toronto Film Scene
