This is part one of our four part series covering EditCon 2019. Unarmed Verses and Sgaawaay K'uuna (Edge of the Knife) are films that have intertwined themes of social justice into compelling stories, bringing important social messages to the screen in their respective genres of narrative and documentary film. Meet editor  Andres Landau and producer  Lea Marin of Unarmed Verses and editor Sarah Hedar and director  Helen Haig-Brown of Sgaawaay K'uuna (Edge of the Knife). The duos behind both of these films discuss the process of collaboration, sensitivity approaching the subject matter, and what each role contributes to the crafting of a powerful narrative. This panel was moderated by Michèle Hozer, CCE.
