We are proud that our work has achieved quantifiable real world results, including helping win a precedent-setting appeal that reversed an Ontario superior court ruling, and launching a criminal investigation into widespread fraudulent production of and distribution of Indigenous art (There Are No Fakes) and inspire the Innocence Project US to investigate the case of five wrongfully convicted black men (The Skyjacker’s Tale).
Known for such titles as There Are No Fakes, The Skyjacker’s Tale, Secret Disco Revolution and Kike Like Me, Jamie Kastner has carved out a unique voice in a wide range of documentary styles: true crime, political thriller, comic-ironic, presenter-led, actuality, historical and musical. His work has launched at festivals such as TIFF, London and Rotterdam, sold around the world on various platforms, won prizes and resounded with audiences and media alike.
Kastner’s work is always political, but rarely overtly so. He strives to make films that are entertaining first, and then provoke audiences to consider afresh their topic.
