Canadian Journalists for Free Expression (CJFE), Hot Docs and The Walrus present "An Independent Mind", a documentary by Rex Bloomstein's. The film explores the state of freedom of expression around the world in 2008, the 60 year anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which protects freedom of expression under Article 19. Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion on the limitations of freedom of expression.

An Independent Mind consists of a series of interviews with people who have faced oppression and censorship for expressing unpopular or radical opinions. Some of the interviewees include The Moustache Brothers, a comedy troupe in Burma, Tiken Jah Fakoly, a reggae star from the Côte d'Ivoire, Ali Dilem, an Algerian cartoonist, and David Irving, a British writer and historian.
