Canadian National Film Day – ‘Films That Make You Think”

April 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

As part of Canadian National Film Day, select communities across the country will be showing Canadian films on Wednesday, April 17th and Films that Make you Think will be screening the inspirational documentary, You are Here: A Come from away story at the Trestle Brewing Company and is pleased to offer free admission with a suggested donation going to support Harvest Share in Parry Sound.

The film club will also be asking for a donation to the local food bank.

You Are Here – A Come From Away Story¬†goes deep into the community of Gander, Newfoundland where 38 airliners carrying over 6,500 passengers were forced to land after the terrorist attacks on 9/11. The film pulls back the emotional layers surrounding the five days during which the community housed, fed and cared for the dislocated passengers (or the “come from aways” in Newfoundland parlance).

“You Are Here”, reveals first-hand accounts of the great kindnesses and energetic resourcefulness the community showed their unexpected guests.
