WAPL is a Toronto-based independent production company that focuses on short documentaries that are personal, inspirational, and provoke social change.
The Red Jacket brought to light the judicial and physical aftermath of an act of bullying in Victoria, B.C. and the pain endured by the victim’s family as they realize their now-disabled 25-year old son will live the rest of his life in an institution. The documentary premiered at the 2009 Victoria Film Festival and received positive reviews.
The access documentary, Zia and Friends, introduced us to a cast of seniors living in a Toronto long term care facility as they sit around the nursing station exchanging barbs and opining openly about those around them. It premiered at the Italian Contemporary Film Festival in 2013.
WAPL’s executive producer, Angela Bianchi, works with some of Canada’s finest talent, including, Gary Popovich, Ian Pearson, Lance Gilson and Don Chaput.
WAPL’s next documentary, Searching for Silvestro, takes us on a journey to find ancestors and locate unknown relatives.
