TAZA MEDIA Inc. 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 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 African-Canadian struggle for identity has already generated significant buzz and acclaim audiences around the world.
As TAZA MEDIA founder and former youth worker, Sherien Barsoum knows that good stories are often uncovered in challenging places. Before founding TAZA, Sherien was a national reporter for CTS, and worked as a producer for CTV, SunTV and Rogers. In addition to making films, Sherien helps the Ontario government tell its stories as Senior Producer of the Ontario Newsroom, where she has overseen the production of over 200 digital shorts. A journalism graduate of Ryerson University, Sherien also holds a Documentary Filmmaking Institute certificate from Seneca’s School of Communication Arts.
