Director Carole Laganiere, who won Best Canadian Short to Mid-Length Documentary at Hot Docs in 2002 and 2003, returns this year with a film about children in East Montreal. In the neighbourhood where she grew up, she explores the hopes and dreams of kids faced with an uncertain future. Armed with still cameras, seven children head out to photograph their neighbourhood, interview some adults, and answer some of Laganiere’s gentle probing questions about their future. As always, kids come up with the most startling and direct answers that take your breath away. John Walker
