The final animation can be viewed at: https://vimeo.com/195400361    Eighteen years and 57 seconds   is an animated meditation on the life of a Toronto street corner and the moments surrounding the brutal death of a vulnerable youth.  Sammy Yatim was a teenager in crisis, shot 9 times by an individual trusted to serve and protect. Although the police officer at the forefront of this tragedy has been found guilty of attempted murder, the victim's family still bears the scars of their son's vilification.   Eighteen years and 57 seconds   is an appeal for compassionate humanization in the face of abuses of power.
