Stories We Tell at Capilano Library

Wednesday, April 19 | 2:30pm—4:30pm

Join us for a screening of a critically acclaimed documentary by Canadian filmmaker Sarah Polley. In this inspired, genre-twisting film, Oscar-nominated writer/director Sarah Polley discovers that the truth depends on who's telling it. Polley is both filmmaker and detective as she investigates the secrets behind a family of storytellers. She playfully interviews and interrogates a cast of characters of varying reliability, eliciting refreshingly candid, yet mostly contradictory, answers to the same questions.

Drop-in, no registration required. For questions please give us a call at 604-987-4471 ext. 8175.

Sleeping Giant at Lynn Valley Library

Wednesday, April 19 | 7:00pm—8:30pm

Teenager Adam is  spending a lonely summer vacation with his parents on rugged Lake Superior, near Thunder Bay. His routine is shattered when he befriends Riley and Nate, smart aleck local boys who pass the time with reckless, potentially dangerous fun. A shocking revelation sets in motion a series of events that tests the bonds of friendship and changes the boys forever. With gorgeous location photography and unerring authenticity, Sleeping Giant highlights that critical moment in adolescence when everything seems possible and every dare is an opportunity to test one’s limitations, regardless of the consequences.

Trick or Treaty? at Parkgate Library

Wednesday, April 19 | 7:00pm—8:30pm

One of the masters of Canadian documentary cinema, Alanis Obomsawin has spent decades chronicling the injustices visited on First Nations communities, creating a remarkable body of work. In this film, she digs into the difficult history of Treaty 9, the infamous 1905 agreement in which First Nations communities allegedly relinquished their sovereignty over their traditional lands. Setting the film against the recent resurgence of First Nations activism (Chief Theresa Spence’s hunger strike and the Idle No More movement), Obomsawin interviews legal, historical and cultural experts — as well as people whose ancestors were present when the treaty was signed — to explore some fundamental questions about Canada’s relationship with our First Nations.
