“YYC Colours is a documentary that is created to start discussions about racism in Calgary and Canada in general. The film took over a year and a half to produce. We spoke to hundreds of people and over 100 interviews were recorded through a community call to action that contributed to the content of the film. The goal is to have people view the film and start having honest conversations about racism and privilege in our society. The subject of race can be very touchy, but if we as a society don’t engage in the conversation and understand the problem, racism will never end”  (www.canadianculturalmosaicfoundation.com/yyc-colours.html).

The documentary also touches on hate crimes, privilege, white fragility, bigotry, xenophobia and islamophobia.
