A roundtable conversation featuring three filmmakers presenting work at Hot Docs International Film Festival in Toronto, in the shorts section and were made within the framework of DocNomads, a European Master degree program in Documentary film, Directing.

Anna Artemyeva’s film, DON'T HESITATE TO COME FOR A VISIT, MOM (2020) is a powerful and timely film chronicling Anna’s separation from her young daughter as she was unable to obtain a visa for her family to join her in Europe from Russia. The film was completed before the pandemic and has since screened at several festivals, recently receiving the IDFA Spotlight Award in the Opening Scenes section at Visions du Reel.

Olga Lucovnicova’s film NANU TUDOR (2021) premiered at Berlinale where it won the Golden Bear for Best Short Film.  In her short film, Olga courageously travels back to her great-grandparents' home in Moldova to confront a childhood trauma. Remaining calm throughout the confrontation, Olga is incredibly somehow able to distance herself as a filmmaker from herself as a traumatized child.

Andrés Cornejo’s film, LETTER FROM EUSAPIA, is an essayistic short film that
ridging past and present time between Belgium and Ecuador to tell a story of loss and uncertainty and a family separated by a global pandemic.  

Moderating the conversation is Teyama Alkamli, filmmaker and Alumni of DocNomads based in Toronto.

*While we highly recommend seeing all three of these films, we think it is important to let audiences know that MY UNCLE TUDOR / NANU TUDOR contains graphic descriptions that could be retraumatizing for survivors of sexual abuse.
