More Info

An animated film adaptation of Gord Downie’s album and Jeff Lemire’s graphic novel, join the Calgary Underground Film Festival and Spirit Fund for this special screening.

Working with Downie’s poetry and music, Lemire has created a powerful visual representation of the life of Chanie Wenjack. The film is divided into 10 chapters, each a song from Downie’s musical retelling of Wenjack’s story—from his escape from the Cecilia Jeffrey Indian Residential School, to his subsequent and heartbreaking death from hunger and exposure to the harsh weather.

Catch The Secret Path at 7:00pm on October 18, 2018 at the Globe Cinema (617 8th Ave. SW). Suggested donation is $5 with all door revenue going to the Downie Wenjack Fund.
