ABOUT THE TEAM

TAZA Media is a Toronto-based web, film, television and commercial production company founded in 2009 by Sherien Barsoum. Most recently, TAZA explored critical issues with a fresh lens in Brampton, Ontario, by following six black high school students during a transformative mentorship program. An award-winning team comprised of editor James Blokland (Nurse, Fighter, Boy), cinematographer John M. Tran (Waterlife), and composer John Welsman (The Sacred Balance) was assembled to share these teens’ compelling stories. The result is COLOUR ME, TAZA Media’s first full-length documentary feature. This unique portrayal of Black Canadians’ struggle for identity has already generated significant buzz and acclaim from the Toronto Arts Council and Shaw Media-HotDocs.
