About i am…
The i am... digital storytelling research project was led by Anna Triandafyllidou, the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Migration and Integration, and Gemini Award-winning filmmaker Cyrus Sundar Singh. In June 2021, CERC Migration unveiled works by 28 graduate students who were selected through an open call to produce creative works that explored belonging or not belonging within a Canadian identity. The creators produced outstanding original short films that weave together a larger story about Canadian identity and contemporary society.
