Seven Generations offers comprehensive production and post-production services to international documentary productions. We have filmed in all corners of the globe and our footage has been featured on the CBC’s Nature of Things and The Fifth Estate, TVO’s Why Poverty Series, in a number of theatrical documentaries and at festivals (TIFF, Hot Docs) and on television news in Brazil, Venezuela, and the USA.
Seven Generations was established by Canadian documentarian Jason O’Hara whose first documentary short Demur recounted the suppression of civil liberties for Toronto’s G20 Summit. The film won the People’s Choice Award at the Cabbagetown short film festival and was recipient of a Canadian Cinema Editors Award. Rhythms of Resistance, Jason’s MFA thesis film about artists resisting against police violence in Rio de Janeiro has screened in festivals on four continents and has received two international festival awards. Since 2010, Jason has been in production on his first feature documentary; State of Exception – about the resistance against forced evictions in Rio de Janeiro before the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics. Since 2014, Jason has been teaching documentary production in Ryerson’s Documentary Media MFA Program.
