Kharé Communications has produced and created a number of feature-length documentaries, as well as some mini-docs that focus on interesting subject matter, with a focus on education and culture.
Breaking Down Walls, Building Bridges
In 2015, Kharé Communications worked with BCIT to create the feature-length documentary Breaking Down Walls, Building Bridges. The film followed First Nations students Glen Campbell and Steve Luk as they worked with the VPD to create a new obstacle course for their canine unit. The film focuses on the importance of recognizing Indigenous culture and skill and how it can be partnered harmoniously with institutions to achieve something great.
The Public Art Collective
This documentary follows a group of Emily Carr University students as they journey through a newly-implemented course. The course was designed to help bridge the gap between newly-emerging artists and the complexities of creating work in the public art realm. The students dealt with all the facets of this process, from researching the history of a prospective artwork's location to pitching an original idea in front of a live panel.
Amit Sandhu (Ampri Group) and Dr. Cameron Cartiere (ECUAD) help narrate the majority of the documentary, as they were the brains behind of the operation from the very beginning. It was highly rewarding getting the opportunity to sit down with these innovators - as well as all of our interview guests - to capture their stories and passion about the public art world.
