Algebra is the directorial debut of Jith Paul, founder of Ottawa-based production company Treepot Media. The 11-minute film is a poetic short about a painter who is losing his sight and features local Ottawa talent in front of and behind the screen. Shot in Wakefield and downtown Ottawa in 2014, the film has just completed a festival tour with screenings in Toronto, Scotland and France.
