Free Screening Of Arctic Film In Toronto

Green Screens is a FREE monthly screening series at the NFB Mediatheque which partners NFB (National Film Board) films with experts and panellists selected by the Canadian Institute for Environmental Law and Policy. This month's film is This Land, by Dianne Whelan, a documentary concerning seven Canadian and Inuit rangers and one documentary filmmaker (Whelan) who set out to cover more than 2,000 km of the harshest terrain on the planet, in the Canadian North.

The film features breathtaking footage of the Arctic landscape, and a mesmerizing soundtrack by Nunavut-born singer and narrator Tanya Tagaq. The film trailer is available here. It screens on Wednesday February 3rd at 7pm at the NFB Mediatheque (150 John St, at Richmond) in Toronto.
