Episode #86 - Documentary Filmmaker: Kwame Damon Mason

August 14, 2017

Paul and Jordan talk to Kwame Mason about his groundbreaking debut feature documentary, Soul On Ice: Past, Present & Future. Exploring the film together, Kwame reveals the difficult, but ultimately heroic, journey of Black hockey players in the NHL, and the important lessons it teaches us about the destructiveness of racism, as well as courage and resilience in the face of hatred. Taking an interesting turn, the episode also delves into the history of the Toronto hip-hop scene, and how--as in filmmaking--discussion the scene can progress when artists collaborate rather than simply compete.
