CFP ReFocusThe Films of Xavier Dolan

Ever since his first feature film J’ai tué ma mère premiered at Cannes in 2009, where it received an eight-minute standing ovation and three awards, every film from the prolific and precocious 28 year-old Québécois director Xavier Dolan has generated significant buzz. A recipient of numerous international awards, Dolan has recently taken his career into genre filmmaking (with Tom à la ferme, which premiered at Venice and garnered the prestigious FRIPESCI prize) and to an international level, with his first English-language feature The Death and Life of John F. Donovan now in post-production.

Dismantling Inequality through Dialogues of Conscience

Humanity, wildlife and the environment have all been negatively impacted by polarizing inequalities. Despite this, courageous individuals and resistance movements have and continue to expose these inequalities and enact change in the face of tremendous opposition. We are interested in submissions that explore gender, racial, sexual, religious, socio-economic and environmental inequalities represented in literature, film as well as other mediums and the changes that have occurred through dialogues inside and outside of the classroom about various forms of inequality.

Topics of interest may include but are not limited to:

In a 2016 music video, “Borders”, the ever-controversial M.I.A., herself a Tamil refugee, comments on the gendered aspects of Western anxieties in the on-going refugee ‘crisis’: images of endless masses of all-male refugees of colour resonate with right-wing myths of uncivilized brown invaders, stealing jobs, raping white women and undermining Euro-American gender progressivism. In fact, gender issues are a constitutive force not only in refugee status and immigration law, but also in media discourses and popular knowledge production about refugees.
