The Toronto International Film Festival wrapped this past weekend and it had a lot to show us. This year, it seemed like the films were all saying the same thing about our world: We’re sick. We’re tired. We’re oppressed. But we haven’t given up.

All art, of course, is a reflection of the world that makes it. But what happens when the world that makes it is…kind of falling apart? Norm Wilner takes us on a journey through TIFF, and by extension, through the heart of the mess of the past two years. Where does our art come from? How does it find hope amidst the chaos? Where will it go in the years to come?
