On November 6 and 7, 2009, Abigail Child (whose work was presented by Melissa Ragona), Su Friedrich, Ericka Beckman, and Peggy Ahwesh presented their work as well as work that had inspired them throughout their careers.

www.nfb.ca Happy passengers are having a great time on a crowded train, oblivious to the unknown fate that awaits them around the bend. After a breakdown, a class struggle ensues that is as amusing as it is merciless. Naturally there are victims, but in the end everyone is equal. Cordell Barker, who directed The Cat Came Back and Strange Invaders, is once again at his best with Runaway. Set to the music of Ben Charest (composer of the Triplets of Belleville : www.lestriplettesdebelleville.com), Runaway takes you on a journey that is both funny and disastrous.
