Canada at War Series
Rating

The seminal Canada at War documentary film series was first broadcast on the CBC on April 3, 1962. Its 13 half-hour episodes were culled from more than 14,000,000 feet of film, mostly shot by Canadian Army cameramen during the Second World War but also including footage shot by German and British film crews. It took a team of editors three years to put the series together under the supervision of documentary filmmaker extraordinaire Donald Britain (who also wrote the commentary). It remains, to this day, one of the most important works on the Second World War.

Rating

This course replaces the former CPT; Computer Production Technology course.
A Kindersley Composite School Student recently won second place in the WorkSafe Saskatchewan 2012 Youth Video Contest. The contest is an initiative by WorkSafe Saskatchewan to raise awareness and knowledge among youth about workplace health and safety issues. Students from across Saskatchewan were invited to submit an original 3-minute video on workplace safety.
A WorkSafe Saskatchewan committee adjudicated nominations based on the students’ creativity and originality in story development, production value, video effects and the video’s overall workplace health and safety message.
Grade 12 student, Vanessa Klassen took second place with her video “Life is Not a Video Game”, that was submitted by teacher Lisa Padberg. As the second place winner she receives $700 and KCS will receive $1000.00. The Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board will present the student and school prizes in June.

Saskatchewan statistics indicate that youth (aged 15-24) are 20 per cent to 30 per cent more likely to have an injury than workers of any other age are. WorkSafe Saskatchewan’s youth strategy is to educate and influence the health and safety beliefs and behaviours of youth to achieve a reduction in injuries.
2013 video contest information will be available in August.

Un/Tied Shoes (from the NFB)
Rating

Growing up, Evie Ruddy didn’t quite feel like a girl, or a boy, and resisted gendered expectations. Only recently, with the growing awareness of non-binary identities, did Evie move toward a more androgynous gender performance and begin using they/them pronouns. Un/tied Shoes tells the story of how gender conventions have impacted Evie’s life, with footwear as markers along the way.

Un/tied is presented as an online shoe company, but visitors expecting to browse the latest styles will instead find a first-person account of self-actualization and contesting categorization. Thanks to gendered fashion industry conventions, buying shoes and clothes that reflect their identity has been a lifelong challenge for Evie. Framing their story as an online shopping experience underscores the hardship many non-binary and transgender people face trying to reflect their gender identity in their outward appearance. It’s an everyday illustration of the deep-rooted mores and social codes that determine who can wear what, and in which circumstances.

With Evie as our guide, Un/tied invites us to step into a future with more options, fewer labels, and shoes that come in all sizes, for all people.
