A Vision at the Margins: Danny

Thu, May 11 / 7 pm
Directed by William D. MacGillivray & Justin Simms
2015, Canada, 83 min

Introduced by Bill MacGillivray.

During his seven years as Premier, Newfoundland and Labrador was transformed from a “have not” into a “have” province under the charismatic and unflinching leadership of Danny Williams. He was legendary for his honesty and street battles with Stephen Harper fighting for the rights of Newfoundlanders. Through revealing back room anecdotes and in–depth interviews the film Danny tells the story of how Williams battled Ottawa and Big Oil alike to ensure that the province received a fair share for its abundant natural resources.

 

Reviews

A beautifully crafted film laced with humour and backroom anecdotes from former staffers. Danny is a compelling story of a feisty everyman situated at the centre of the political changes and powers of the time.
