Project 2 of 5
Pictured, "Sia", full of metaphor and symbolism, SIA tells the story of a former child soldier who takes a Canadian university student hostage in a West African Liberian refugee camp and the events that unfold during this struggle of compassion and rage. "The Particulars", meditates on the biggest and smallest issues of our time. Our storytellers are Lillian, a youth minister recently returned from a journey to the central African jungle, and Gordon, a member of Lillian's congregation desperate to navigate societal norms after a tragic loss. Both long for answers amongst the daily distractions that permeate their lives.
