@ The Patricia Theatre {est 1913}

5848 Ash Avenue
Powell River BC  V8A-4R6



Join us for a film screening of "100 Short Stories," a documentary about predatory capitalism, renewable energy, and the fight against fracking.

"100 Short Stories" is the first feature-length film by acclaimed Nova Scotian filmmaker Neal Livingston. Neal will be in attendance to address the audience during the screening in Powell River.

Event details
When: Sunday, June 11 at 10:30 a.m.
Where: Patricia Theatre, 5848 Ash Ave

Tickets are $8. For more information please contact 604-485-5409. The film screening is being hosted by the Powell River Chapter of the Council of Canadians.

With his filmmakers typical irreverence, Livingston interweaves tales of predatory capitalism, eco-activism, and contemporary life in Atlantic Canada, engaging in an offbeat and often humorous exploration of energy policy, governance, and regional culture, in a diaristic collage of entrepreneurship and environmentalism. The film presents a first person account of a year-long struggle to develop Black River Wind, a renewable energy project, and overcoming an attempted hostile takeover. Meanwhile, the local citizens of Inverness County band together to defeat oil and gas drilling and fracking coming on Cape Breton Island.

"100 Short Stories" won the 2017 Energy Award – Cinema Verde Film Festival (one of the Top 6 environmental film festivals in the U.S.), Official Selection at Atlantic Film Festival (Halifax) and Planet in Focus (Toronto).
