We Filmed a Documentary on Halifax Councillor Lindell Smith

HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA — When my co-director Colin Bullard and I approached Sylvia Hamilton at the University of King’s College about filming a documentary on councillor of District 8 Peninsula North, Lindell Smith, she thought it was a great idea.

What followed was a full month of learning about councillor Smith and what makes him tick.

We learned about his process campaigning along with the struggles and the absolute payoff when he won: “Mama, we did it!”

Smith was the first black councillor in 16 years and this is his story.
