Tales From the Neighbourhood

THU, JAN 23 / 7 pm
Introduced by directors Tammy Marlowe Johnson, Erika MacPherson, and
Dodie Graham McKay

Over the past several years, MTS Stories from Home has sparked the creation of hundreds of hours of new, intensely local TV content in Manitoba. Literally 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. From roots musicians to Winnipeg jazz history and the disappearance of the classic lunch counter The Wagon Wheel, this commissioning program has sparked incredible archival research into Manitoba history and brought it into a public viewing. In a special collaboration with MTS Stories from Home we present the first of four quarterly screenings of new recent documentaries.

May We Grow / Directed by Erika MacPherson, 2013, Canada, 22 min / Following the illness and removal of a boulevard elm tree, the residents at 10 Ruby St. develop an extraordinary relationship with the remaining elm, whose fate is uncertain.

Cooking the Revolution / Directed by Dodie Graham McKay, 2013, Canada, 31 min / Arriving as an immigrant to Canada at 17, Harry Paine embarked on a life long journey of fighting for social justice, organizing the working class and mastering the art of feeding people really good food.

Perogy / Directed by Tammy Marlowe Johnson, 2012, Canada, 19 min / This fun and whimsical documentary explores the unknown quality that makes a perogy… a perogy, and along the way, we reveal the important bonds between family, tradition and food.

This screening is generously sponsored by MTS Stories from Home.
