World Records brings together the voices of scholars, critics, makers and curators who offer new and complex perspectives on documentary to challenge and extend its margins. Hot Docs invites audiences to three free study sessions with World Records that ask: What are Independents independent of?

This session...
How do festivals reproduce power relations even when their screening programs challenge social, political, and aesthetic conventions? How can programmers disrupt pre-existing networks and industrial pipelines? With special focus on programming in and from Southern Africa, Brazil, and Syria.

Session participants include Stefan Tarnowski, Nataleah Hunter Young, Juliano Gomes, Abby Sun, plus special guests.
