In 2008, in collaboration with MAWA: Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art, the Winnipeg Film Group launched the Mosaic Women’s Film Project, a new production mentorship and funding program to support the development of woment of Aboriginal or diverse cultural backgrounds to create new independent work.

As the second edition of the Mosaic Women’s Film Project comes to an end, we are thrilled to premiere new short works by artists Jody Leigh Pacey and Shimby Zegeye-Gebrehiwot. The artists will be in attendance and will introduce their works and discuss their development and creation process.

Sorrow’s Companion by Jody Leigh
A drama about a young Aboriginal man who just gets released from jail. He wants to make changes in his life but the bad choices he makes get in the way. We discover how these bad choices affect his life.

yaya/ayat by Shimby Zegeye-Gebrehiwot
yaya/ayat explores identities, being lost in translation and distance. But at its core it’s about Shimby longing for a relationship with her geographically distant grandma and her journey to Greece to find her. This is an experimental documentary about how being a part of any diaspora shapes a person’s identity.
