Movie n Night at St. Paul’s is back after long months of hiatus.
For its initial comeback, Movie Night is proud to present “The Thinking Garden”, a Matrix Award Winner in the 2017 Vancouver Women in Film Festival and the sole Canadian film chosen for presentation at the 2018 United Nations Women’s Film Festival in Amman, Jordan.
As we enter the Season of Creation, a global annual celebration of prayer and action to protect creation celebrated by Christians of all traditions, we thought we would bring you a new Canadian film by B.C. filmmaker, Christine Welsh, based on a project initiated and nurtured by Elizabeth Vibert, who also co-wrote and co-produced the film, The Thinking Garden. This film about three generations of older women in a village in South Africa, who came together in the dying days of apartheid to create a community garden.
The film’s cinematographer and editor, Moira Simpson, will be in attendance to introduce the film and answer questions after the screening.
Donations from this screening will go to the grandmothers in South Africa, to support their community garden.
St. Paul’s rector, Reverend Philip Cochrane, will open the evening with a short discussion about the Season of Creation.
