REEL CANADA in Saskatoon
On Monday May 7th, REEL CANADA we’ll be adding another province to our National Tour – Saskatchewan. An event for 400 students from several schools in Saskatoon will be hosted at the beautiful Broadway Theatre downtown.
In the morning, students will be treated to the documentary REEL INJUN, by Neil Diamond, which deals with representations of native people in Hollywood. The film will be preceded by a beautiful animated short film, DANCERS OF THE GRASS, by local, Saskatoon-based Aboriginal filmmaker Melanie Jackson, who will be attending the event in person and talking to the students about her work.
The event is going to be staffed by people from our Toronto and (fledgling) Vancouver offices – east and west meeting in the middle to bring some awesome Canadian films to Saskatoon teens.
