Canadian Filmmaker Pier-Philippe Chevigny talks to me about his new film short ‘Rebel’

27 January 2021

I chat with filmmaker Pier-Philippe Chevigny about his latest film short, which is currently under consideration for an Oscar 2021 nomination. The film is very poignant and without spoiling it, focusses on the refugees who fled to Canada after the Trump Administration cancelled the Temp Protected Status (TPS) for immigrants. Those affected were so fearful of the reprisals and issues that would face, they fled to Canada. This film shows the right wing surge of those groups in Canada which formed to stop refugees from entering. It is shown through the eyes of an innocent six year old.
