Shaken then Stirred Up

Posted by Cara Mumford on Thursday, March 20, 2014, In : "When It Rains" 


There are some events that shake us to our core. For me, one such event happened on December 6, 1989. The Montreal Massacre.  I remember getting off the bus on a bitterly cold morning before class on December 7 (I didn’t have a TV to see the news the night before). I remember a group of women huddled together in front of the newspaper boxes, reading one paper, silent with shock. 

“Man kills 14 women in Montreal.”

But this is Canada! I thought, back when I thought that made a difference. S...

International Women's Day 2013

Posted by Cara Mumford on Monday, March 11, 2013, In : "December 6" 
Last Friday, I had the honour of speaking to Women's House Serving Bruce Grey County, in the traditional territory of the Saugeen Ojibway, for their International Women's Day Celebration. The international theme this year was The Gender Agenda: Gaining Momentum. My interpretation of that theme was that in order to build and maintain the momentum, we need to recognize that violence affects women of all cultures, but the form of that violence often differs. We need to listen to each other, to r...

When sleeping women wake, mountains move: #IdleNoMore

Posted by Cara Mumford on Friday, December 28, 2012, In : "When It Rains" 
As a Canadian who believes in democracy, I am beyond frustrated by Harper and his cronies running rough shod over our political system. When you have a majority government, you have a responsibility to govern for ALL of the people, not just the constituents who voted for you. But Harper's Conservatives apparently feel no such responsibility. As Elizabeth May said, "No previous Privy Council in the history of this country has ever equated an amendment to a bill between first reading and royal ...

Weekend Filming

Posted by Cara Mumford on Tuesday, July 3, 2012, In : "When It Rains" 
We filmed the Toronto portion of "When It Rains" this weekend in graffiti alley. I ended up with a great crew and will have some amazing footage! I also learned many lessons along the way, as with every film I make. The main lesson I learned on this one is to bring people on board earlier in the process, especially the Director of Photography. I wish I'd known Elisa Iannacone, my DP, back when I was grant writing for the film. Same thing with Production Manager Jeryn Daly. As it is, only Lead...

Reflecting Lives: New Works from Aboriginal Women

Posted by Cara Mumford on Sunday, March 11, 2012, In : "December 6" 
Now that I’ve started a blog on this website (with weekly updates when my computer doesn't crash), I’ve decided to merge the blogspot blogs that I set up for each of my festival films with this one. I might eventually migrate some of the more pertinent posts over here, as well, but in the meantime…  

My short film, "December 6," will be screening at "Reflecting Lives: New Works from Aboriginal Women," a partnership between the Winnipeg Cinematheque, Urban Shaman Gallery and imagineNATIVE...
