Film Premiere 1784: (Un)Settling Antigonish

Film Premiere at Antigonish International Film Festival

A year-long journey (October 2014-2015) of cross-cultural community-building and truth and reconciliation led to our creating and performing 1784: (Un)Settling Antigonish. Our community theatre production—rather, pilgrimage—performed by a cast of 30 spanning all ages, ethnicities, and levels of experience, has taught us our shared history. The documentary film has been produced to share with educators, community development workers, and all those excited about bridge-building through speaking truth to history.

The film premiered on October 21, 2016 at the Antigonish International Film Festival celebrating its 10th anniversary.

Denise Davies of Eckova Film and Media Productions was the film producer, videographer and editor. Denise remarked “The full creative team and actors together with the community supporters made this an exciting project and brought diverse members of the community to work on this collaborative search into our history. ”
