Exploring the stories of women who live by a ride-or-die philosophy

Alicia Bunyan-Sampson’s Film Happy 1 Year Premieres at the Reel Sisters of the Diaspora Film Festival!

ALICIA BUNYAN-SAMPSON Is a Toronto based creator. She studied at George Brown College, where she earned a diploma in Assaulted Women & Children’s Counselling/Advocacy and is currently a part time Social Work student at York University. Her work deals largely with her exploration of trauma ; challenging current narratives in film and a deliberate experimentation of her own lens of art and politics. Alicia elected to commit her energy to The Ride or Die Project to further examine herself and her relationships with those around her as well to challenge herself to connect and share with women in a healthy way. It is Alicia’s hope that together in this project, we can build transformative spaces of discovery and healing.
