ABBY I HARDLY KNEW YA
Director/Writer, Lindalee Tracey
Producer, Peter Raymont
The haunting story of a daughter's search for her derelict father, Lindalee Tracey explores the life and sorrows of Abby, a street drunk and petty crook: a big-hearted man who took every opportunity and aimed it against himself. Abby, I Hardly Knew Ya is a deeply personal film, unflinchlingly intimate. It stretches the documentary genre with spare, bare bones writing and impressionistic elements. It is a cinematic poem of personal and contradictory emotions- a testimony to the legacy that alcoholics leave us.

VOICES FROM THE SHADOWS
Co-Director/Writer, Lindalee Tracey
Producer/Director, Peter Raymont
Filmed in four provinces, focusing on three families and individuals on assistance, this compellingdocumentary examines Canada's complex welfare system. The film is a critical examination of the welfare policies in four Canadian provinces and a compelling drama of very different individuals and families on welfare struggling to survive - how they are treated, what benefits they receive, and the patchwork of complicated laws and policies which determine their eligibility for assistance. Hauntingly real, Voices from the Shadows echoes the voices of poor Canadians who ask nothing more than to be treated with fairness and respect.
