Better Left Unsaid

The premise behind Better Left Unsaid, lies in the unconfined analysis of the often violent extremism of today’s Western political landscape. As liberal democracy becomes increasingly challenged in the West, we expose the dangerous tactics employed by the radical-left and far-right, alike. In a world where political polarization frames the way in which we live, a new path forward of unity is needed more than ever before. The value of the film lies in its impact, brevity and digestibility — as we confront the philosophical underpinnings of the radical left and their extreme right counterpart.

Director Biography - CURT JAIMUNGAL

Born in Trinidad, raised in Toronto, Curt Jaimungal became interested in filmmaking while studying mathematical physics at the University of Toronto, where he founded the largest growing club on campus, the University of Toronto Television. From humble beginnings, he began his first feature film at 26, which focused on mental health issues.

'I'm Okay', a film about the depression, self-hate, and suicidal ideations that follow the loss of a longterm relationship, had several screenings in Toronto even years after the film's release. Subsequently, he became interested in philosophy and psychology while starting Toronto's first film incubator - indiefilmTO - where he taught filmmakers how to overcome psychological barriers that hold them back from filmmaking.

Observing increasing political extremism, Curt began to suspect there is more to what motivates the extremes than the ostensible nobleness they proclaim, sending him on a journey that has led to 'Better Left Unsaid'.
