TRANSITIONS - August 12, 6:00pm, Innis College
From growing up to growing old, these films examine the concepts, knowledge, and understandings we gain and all the changes that come with it while hurdling through a tornado's range of emotions. At times, knowledge and change can be enlightening but it can also be incredibly scary. Through moments of contemplation, sparks are found at the end of dark tunnels and exciting discoveries are made.
