The Dr. Vibe Show™

Toronto-based filmmaker Yasmine Mathurin‘s award-winning directorial debut is One of Ours. Ms. Mathurin is a Haitian-Canadian Writer & Director and award-winning podcast producer. In 2011, she was selected to take part in the United Nations Human Rights Fellowship Program for people of African-Descent. She was the youngest and only UN delegate from the fellowship to also receive a scholarship with the Organization Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF). This became the starting point for her to pursue her career in journalism and filmmaking. She produced the audio-fiction podcast The Shadows which won Gold in the fiction category at the 2019 Canadian Digital Publishing Award, and the CBC podcast Tai Asks Why, which won a Webby people’s choice award. She is a recipient of the 2019 Netflix-Banff Media Diverse Voices Fellowship and is an alumni of numerous film labs including the Hot Docs Documentary Lab, the UnionDocs Feature documentary lab, the DOC Breakthrough program and Yale University’s THREAD multimedia storytelling fellowship.

One of Ours has racked up a whole slew of awards and accolades beginning with it’s world premiere at Hot Docs, the largest documentary film festival in North America, including Special Jury Prize (Canadian Feature), Top Ten Audience Favourite, and recently the On the Rise Award, sponsored by IATSE 856 at the 2021 Gimli Film Fest. The film stars Josiah Wilson who was adopted as a baby in Haiti and raised in an Indigenous family in Calgary, Canada. Years later, when Josiah is racially profiled at an Indigenous basketball tournament and refused the right to play a sport he deeply loves, his experience makes the news. This honest portrayal of complicated family dynamics interweaved with basketball, boldly asks us to create space for non-linear paths to self-acceptance, while revealing the empowering experience of being accepted and loved by your community.
