100 Short Stories

Thu, May 25 / 7 pm
2016, Canada, 68 min
Directed by Neal Livingston

Introduced by Neal Livingston.

Neal Livingston is Atlantic Canada’s Don Quixote: he not only tilts at windmills, he makes them. 100 Short Stories, which is more of a personal essay and less of an anthology, sees the veteran documentary director combine his twin loves—the environment and filmmaking—into one tale of trial and tribulation. Fighting the oil and gas interests in Cape Breton while trying to launch a wind energy project in Nova Scotia, Livingston and his passionately engaged film have enough material for many short stories -maybe 100. Or as Livingston would prefer to put it, his film is “about opinions regarding governance, public policy, and what are sound ideas socially, environmentally and culturally. It’s about predatory Capitalism, renewable energy, stopping the frackers, and contemporary life in Atlantic Canada.
