Joseph Johnson-Cami is a filmmaker, a father, a lover, a social activist and hacker of unjust systems. Spanish and North American descent, his life and career span multiple continents, where he has written, directed, facilitated and edited over 20 films. His projects span from experimental dance films to feature documentaries that explore the endless environmental and surveillance issues produced by technological capitalism. His feature documentary A Grain of Sandled to the creation of the smallest National Park in the world, and his documentary series (un)Lawful Access helped prevent the Canadian government from legalizing warrantless surveillance in Canada. His most recent collaboration is Heart: Citizens of the Esplanade, an award-winning community-generated docu-film about the current and historical impact social housing has had on the Esplanade community in Toronto, Canada. Creativity is one of the most beautiful gifts life gives us and as a creator, Joseph would like to do that gift justice by projecting ideas into this world that are relevant to a free, humane, and just society in all our relations.
