Stories From the Neighbourhood

FRI, JUN 13 / 7 pm
Featuring a Q&A with the filmmakers

Over the last several years MTS Stories From Home has sparked the creation of hundreds of hours of new intensely local TV content in Manitoba. Dozens of documentary films by Winnipeg filmmakers – emerging and senior – have been prominent among this new programming. This body of work, unique in vision and vast in scope, has supported local filmmakers as they tell stories that may not have been otherwise produced.

Born out of Love / Directed by Aaron Zeghers and Ryan Simmons / 2014, Canada, 46 min, World Premiere / An outsider’s glimpse into the titillating world of Harlequin Romance novels! In 1949, Richard H.G. Bonnycastle and his wife Mary opened a small book publishing business in Winnipeg. Little did they know that their company Harlequin Books would conceive and reign over the romance genre in North America, printing over 6 billion books to date and publishing over 110 new books every month.

Pussyfingers Goes to Paris / Directed by Noam Gonick, 2012, Canada, 23 min / This film captures a magical moment where Winnipeg’s Art Scene shone so very bright. Meet the artists and curator as they mount an exhibit of erotic art displayed during the landmark “My Winnipeg” exhibition at Paris’ la Maison Rouge gallery.
