A little piece of Heaven

We had a wonderful experience for an entire weekend in a remote small place in the village of Queensborough, Ontario, Canada named St Mary of Egypt Refuge. 
It was the perfect place to disconnect from all the noise of the agitated cities and to be able to reconnect with the loved ones and with that sensitive part within us.

Blue Suicide

Directed/Shot and Edited by Lucian Vasile
Wyn ...... Tim McLarty
Frank ...... Michael J. B. Hogan
Claire ...... Lily Domingue
Music Composed by Mikhai Louise Vergara


An unarmed man dies in a stand-off with police officers on Boxing Day in a crowded Toronto shopping mall. Wyn Rhys, Director of the Special Police Oversight Agency, is tasked with investigating it. Will this case be like almost every other case in the history of the fledgling agency, hobbled by an uncooperative and secretive police force, or will the shocking video of the incident, taken by a mysterious bystander, give SPOA the public support they need to bring the police to justice?

Blue Suicide is a rare, behind-the-scenes look at the politics and deal-brokering between the police and the oversight agency that investigates them when any civilian is killed, seriously injured, or harassed in the line of duty. It explores the impact on the lives of the families of the victims and how technology has empowered citizens and reversed the concept of the ‘surveillance society’. It is also the story of Wyn Rhys, a police officer turned investigator turned Director of SPOA and his personal demons, as he grapples with complicated feelings for a female survivor from one of his early investigations.

La Muse Roumaine | Making of |

This video was screened on the big screen of the AGO. 

La Muse Roumaine" is a photo exhibit by Florin Prunoiu, who reinterprets works of art through his camera lens. The results can be admired at IA festival events in Montreal, Cambridge, and Toronto.
IA: A woman's pride, a people's identity, an artist's muse. Created and perfected through centuries of peasant women's sensibility, ia, the Romanian blouse, has become an inspiration for famous painters such as Matisse and Renoir, and Romanian masters Grigorescu or Tonitza. Its beauty and harmony have been rendered in iconic pieces such as "La Blouse Roumaine", now a symbolic image that represents a veritable cultural revival of a timeless traditional garment.
This is a TRADICIOUS initiative.
