When freelance producer Naomi Buck moved her two young children from Germany to her native Canada, she was struck by how cultural differences impacted her children's experiences on the playground - and beyond. She explores those differences in this week's documentary, "Sometimes there are monsters under your bed". 


About the doc maker: Born and raised in Toronto, Naomi did undergrad studies in the US, Nigeria and Montreal before completing a Masters in Anthropology at York U. She moved to Berlin on a one-year academic exchange and fell prey to that city's powers of seduction, ultimately staying for twelve, working in film production and journalism for German and Canadian media. Since 2011, she has been back in Toronto with her two German-Canadian sons.
