Navin recently released Poor Agnes, a horror/thriller to wildly positive critical and public reviews. Winning the coveted Barry Convex Award for Best Canadian Film at the 2017 Fantasia Film Festival, this is what the jury members had to say about the film and the filmmaker –
“Poor Agnes was chosen to represent the 2017 Barry Convex Award not only for its impressive direction, darkly comic storytelling and overall unified vision, but for its challenging attitude. Coming out of a country with a system where voices of subversion against, and challenges to, the mainstream status quo are few and far between - and yet more important than ever – Poor Agnes acts as a daring and powerful middle finger against establishment filmmaking."
