Someone Like Me
Sean Horlor & Steve J. Adams
Join us this October for a series of new Canadian documentaries programmed by Alex Rogalski, senior Canadian programmer at Hot Docs, North America’s largest documentary film festival.
In Sean Horlor and Steve J. Adams’ feature doc Someone Like Me, Drake, a young gay man from Uganda, leaves behind everything he knows to attain the universal freedoms everyone deserves: to be who he is and love whomever he chooses without fear of discrimination, persecution, or violence. A group of queer strangers unite to resettle Drake in Vancouver, but they are tasked with a year-long commitment to someone they’ve never met, and struggle with the challenging conditions of this support. Together, Drake and his sponsors embark on an emotional journey in search of personal freedom, revealing how in a world where one must constantly fight for the right to exist, survival itself becomes a victory.
This screening will include introductory remarks from community partner Wendy Li from OUT Saskatoon, to explore connections between the film and the local community.
Free with admission or membership. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please arrive early to guarantee your seat.
The SaskTel Theatre is sanitized between events with an electrostatic sprayer, meant for spaces that are more difficult to disinfect using traditional cleaning techniques.
