Sovereign Soil", NFB Film Club @Library, Pictou Library, 6:30-8 p.m. Join us for an NFB (National Film Board of Canada) documentary film screening. All are welcome. This month's film is the critically acclaimed film, "Sovereign Soil". About the Film: At the far-flung edge of Canada’s boreal forest, outside the tiny sub-Arctic town of Dawson City, Yukon, a handful of unlikely farmers are growing everything from snow-covered Brussels sprouts to apples. These modern-day agrarians have carved out small patches of fertile soil in an otherwise unforgiving expanse of isolated wilderness to make a living and a life. Over the course of a year, Dawson filmmaker David Curtis follows these resilient, unassuming farmers—including a German immigrant, a young family that taps birch trees for syrup, a First Nations youth, and a matriarch who can shoot and quarter a moose—exploring life, death, and time through the simple, rich day-to-day of people deeply tied to the wilds. For more info, please call the library, 902-485-5021.
