Nettie Wild

Nettie Wild is one of Canada’s leading documentary filmmakers and the founder and president of Canada Wild Productions. Her critically acclaimed films have brought her audiences behind the frontlines and headlines of revolutions and social change around the world. Her award-winning documentary features include FIX: The Story of an Addicted City (2002), A Place Called Chiapas (1998), Blockade (1993), and A Rustling of Leaves: Inside the Philippine Revolution (1988). More recent works, such as the multiscreen Uninterrupted (2017), have gained recognition for crossing new frontiers in storytelling on the big screen, on the Web, and in large-scale public installations. A book about her work and career entitled Wild at Heart was published in 2009. In 2010, she received the Vancouver Film Critics Circle Award for her contribution to the BC film industry and the Vancouver Sun named her one of the province’s most influential women in arts and culture.

Caroline Brunt

Trained as an RN in London, England early 1980s. Since 1997 I have worked as a fulltime/casual Street Nurse/Outreach Nurse with the BC Centre for Disease Control with marginalized populations in Vancouver’s DTES, the gay community in the West Ned and migrant farm workers in the Fraser Valley providing STI/HIV care and liaising and referring clients to primary health care.

During my tenure at the BCCDC, I helped make an award winning nursing documentary about people who use drugs – talking about the complexity of the nurse patient relationship, health access, equity and respect. The documentary is called Bevel Up: Drugs, Users and Outreach Nursing. Bevel Up is used in nursing schools across the country and has helped change how we treat people who are marginalized, not only in Canada, but in other countries around the world.

I completed my BSN in the 2000’s from the University of Victoria.

Since 2011 I have been a Nurse Instructor with Vancouver Community College working with the LPN and BSN Nursing program working with students in the classroom and going out into community with students for their clinical community practicum placements.

Quote: About Bevel Up and working with the NFB: “The marriage of Art and Science – in the delivery of compassion, care and understanding.”
