Fall NFB Film Screenings

NFB Screening: Buying Sex
Directed by Teresa MacInnes and Kent Nason

Timely and wise, this important documentary about the state of prostitution laws in Canada is a revelation. Those laws, forged in the 19th century, are now being challenged by both pro-prostitution and anti-prostitution forces, with no  evident consensus about which way forward is either best or likely. Buying Sex carefully guides the viewer through a wide spectrum of disagreement, exploring the many points of view in this age-old yet contemporary debate.

NFB Screening: The People of the Kattawapiskak River
Directed by Alanis Obomsawin

Alanis Obomsawin’s documentary The People of the Kattawapiskak River exposes the housing crisis faced by 1,700 Cree in Northern Ontario, a situation that led Attawapiskat’s band chief, Theresa Spence, to ask the Canadian Red Cross for help. With the Idle No More movement making front page headlines, this film provides background and context for one aspect of the growing crisis. The Williams Lake Longhouse can be accessed by Pinchbeck Street through the Stampede Grounds.

NFB Screening: Stories we Tell

Directed by Sarah Polley

In this inspired, genre-twisting new film, Oscar®-nominated writer/director Sarah Polley discovers that the truth depends on who’s telling it. Polley is both filmmaker and detective as she investigates the secrets kept by a family of storytellers. She playfully interrogates a compelling cast of characters, eliciting candid, yet mostly contradictory, answers to the same questions. Polley unravels the paradoxes to reveal the essence of family: always complicated, warmly messy and fiercely loving.
