Description

'Stand On Guard' by Daniel Hicks captures a street level view of the infamous detainment by police and security forces during the G20 Summit in Toronto, including a confrontation between by standers and a Global News crew over their portrayal of the situation. Using additional news and video footage it contrasts the security throughout that weekend with media coverage and eye level perspectives into an examination of free speech and civil rights in Canada. This documentary was made with original video by Daniel Hicks as well as a variety of documentary, news and personal video that is used under the fair dealing exceptions of the Canadian Copyright Act. These documentaries were both first and secondary sources for some of the video clips : Into the Fire, Press For Truth - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zejD0UkMGGY G20 Exposed - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hcl6aBqZTZI You Should Have Stayed At Home, The Fifth Estate - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sX0BbLc_PIk more video sources : Caught In The Act, Ombudsman Report on the G20 Summit - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rc3jlxN_fzA Toronto G20 protesters 'kettled' in 2010 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MpMuO6dyjTg G20 security braces for main protest - http://www.cbc.ca/player/play/1530950078 G20 restrictions - http://www.cbc.ca/player/play/1506683830 riot police attacking people singing O'Canada.
