And Who Are You?

The film “And Who Are You?” examines the complex sense of identity of many Canadians, through the experience of four Canadians who share a Polish ancestral connection.
The four are all social researchers or activists in their professional lives, very much involved in questions of ethnic identity and minority and human rights. In this film, they turn their professional analytic skills on themselves, as they all travel to Poland together, ostensibly to attend an international conference on immigration and identity.

The film weaves together the stories of the four characters, both in Canada and Poland. In the end, it opens the door, for viewers, to a broader reflection on Canadian identity. In many ways, these four are very typical Canadians – Canadians who are linked to multiple heritages. The film helps us to understand what those multiple strands in our identities could mean – if we took the time to explore them.

The four characters in the film are: Donna Dasko, of Toronto; Victor Armony, of Montreal; Jean Teillet, of Vancouver; and Jack Jedwab, of Montreal. The film was shot in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal and in Crakow and Warsaw, Poland. It was written by Karl Nerenberg, directed by Karl Nerenberg and Malcolm Hamilton and produced by Ela Kinowska.
