NFB FILM CLUB: 5 CANADIAN SHORTS

Idea Excahnge Queen's Square


Description:

Big Drive - 10 minutes

From Anita Lebeau, director of the award-winning film Louise, comes the story of a family road trip across the Canadian prairies during the 1970's.  An exuberant exploration of childhood imagination, Big Drive invited audiences of all ages to see the world as it appears "from the back seat."

 

Gone Curiling - 9 minutes

Hockey has its fans, but on the Canadian prairies curling is almost a cult.  It's not surprising to find streets deserted, stores closed and signs that read " Gone Curling."  Filmed in Eston, Saskatchewan, this short records the history of a rookie's first game.  Even non-curlers will fee the pull of the stones and the flick of the brooms in this choice rink-side view.

 

Corral - 11 minutes

Colin Low's classic romantic portrait of a cowboy rounding up wild horses, lassoing one of the high-spirited animals in the corral, and then going for a glorious ride across the visually spectacular Rocky Mountain foothills in Alberta.

 

Nahanni - 18 minutes

The legend of a lost gold mine and a river in the Northwest Territories that lures men to their doom.  Albert Faille, an aging prospector, has set out time and again to find hidden gold.  His route takes him through a wild and awesome landscape that sets the mood for this Canadian odyssey.

 

Song of the Paddle - 45 minutes

Outdoorsman Bill Mason and his wife and two children embark on a wilderness canoe camping holiday.  In this film, the art of canoeing is more than technical expertise: it becomes a family experience of shared joy.  Along the way there are countless adventures and much lovely scenery, including the indigenous rock carvings of Lake Superior.
