206 Carlton

(Video, 14min, Colour)

Using archival materials, 206 Carlton is a short experimental compilation-based documentary film that brings together a story of racism and resistance in the city of Toronto, through focusing on one address, one house. At the center of this story is Ernst Zundel, a former resident of 206 Carlton Street, and internationally infamous Holocaust denier. From this downtown Victorian townhouse he spread hate materials that found their way to the hands of hateful groups around the world.
