Join us at the Harbourfront Library every Friday afternoon for a selection of thought-provoking Canadian cinema, courtesy of our National Film Board.
On July 12, we will be showing two acclaimed documentaries exploring the state of Atlantic Canada’s fisheries. “Hand. Line. Cod.” takes viewers deep inside the world of Newfoundland’s brave fishers returning to past methods that hold tremendous potential for the future. Travel with them from the early morning hours, spend time on the ocean, and witness the intricacies of a 500-year-old tradition that’s making a comeback. “Bluefin” is a tale of epic stakes set in “the tuna capital of the world,” North Lake, Prince Edward Island, Canada. The film explores the baffling mystery of why the normally wary bluefin tuna no longer fear humans.
The show starts at 2 pm.
