Stream SCISSERE for free

Our friends at Doc Alliance Films are celebrating school being out for the summer with a selection of student films from acclaimed directors around the world. See where some of your favourite documentary filmmakers got their start!

We’re excited to be hosting Peter Mettler’s 1982 film Scissere, which marked the end of his film studies. This story of a psychiatric patient who leaves the mental hospital for the first time and enters the minds of other characters was awarded the Norman McLaren Prize after its premiere.

Stream the film for free until Sunday, July 12, 2015.

To learn more about Mettler’s work in his own words, read POV’s two-part interview from 2009. His latest doc was also featured on the cover of our 2012 Fall Festival issue.
