As recent events have compelled us all to look inwards, and have difficult but necessary conversations about race, religion, and our relationships with one another, we look to film as an entry point for conversation. Presented in partnership with the Mosaic Institute, "The Mosque" takes us inside the small Muslim community of Quebec City in the wake of the 2017 shooting that devastated their lives and families. Follow survivors as they navigate their place in Quebec society and fight to shift the narrative around Islamophobia in Canada. Through a highly personal and human lens, this documentary helps break down the concept of “otherness” to build a better way forward.
Once you’ve watched the film (www.hotdocs.ca), join us on Thursday, July 16 at 7:30 p.m. for a live expert panel that will center around breaking down divisions and bringing communities together.
The Mosaic Institute is a think-and-do tank which brings together people, communities, and nations to advance pluralism and reduce conflict. This project is part of Mosaic’s work on race relations in Ontario. Visit www.mosaicinstitute.ca for more information
