Art in a chaotic world: Watch Canadian Screen Award-nominated Interrupt This Program Season 1 now
Season 2 starts February 5th and takes you to Moscow, Lagos, Jerusalem, Havana and Manila
Art as political protest, as a means of survival, as an agent of change, as a display of courage and delight. Interrupt This Program explores the art scenes in cities under pressure.
CBC Arts, Noble Television, and Story Park are honoured to have Season 1 of Interrupt This Program nominated for three Canadian Screen Awards — best biography or arts documentary program or series, best picture editing in a documentary program or series (Geoff Klein for the Medellín episode) and best direction in a documentary or factual series (Olivier Aghaby for the Beirut episode).
In a city under pressure, where conflict can break out at any moment, a new generation of artists is rising above Beirut's bullet-holed past.
In Colombia's city of Medellin a rapper, a musician, a filmmaker and an urban planner take us on a tour of their city currently experiencing a cultural renaissance.
