On February 25 Leila Sujir presented her film For Jackson: A Time Capsule from his Two Grandmothers. Leila Sujir’s nephew, Jakson Sujir was also present for the screen.
For Jackson: A Time Capsule from his Two Gramothers is a documentary portrait of two Canadian women, Rosemary Brown (1930-2003), BC’s first black MLA, and Ruth Horricks-Sujir (b. 1925) who as a young woman, moved to India. The film creates a time capsule for their young grandson, Jackson, who is a hip-hop artist and rapper in Vancouver. Leila Sujir compiled video footage over many years to explore memory, as well as archival material in film and photography to piece together the histories of Jackson’s grandmothers. She moves the viewer through the geographies and journeys of the women’s lives.
