The broadcast-length documentary “Warpaths: Every Town Had Soldiers” will be shown at the Evans Theatre on Nov. 2.
Street Media Inc., in association with the RCA Museum, will premiere the documentary "Warpaths: Every Town Had Soldiers" at the Evans Theatre on Nov. 2.
This broadcast-length documentary features the stories of three men from western Manitoba who fought for Canada during the First World War.
Produced by Street Media, it was written and hosted by RCA Museum director Marc George.
Filming for this project took place in the spring and summer of 2012 and features many locations throughout the Westman area, including the town of Boissevain, Camp Hughes Provincial Heritage Site and the RCA Museum in CFB Shilo.
The filmmakers also travelled to France, following the footsteps of the Westman soldiers who fought for their country in the iconic Battle of Vimy Ridge.
The Nov. 2 premiere begins at 7 p.m. with a champagne reception, followed by the screening of the documentary and a special question-and-answer session with the filmmakers, George and Graham Street.
This event is also part of the Brandon Film Festival’s 2012 fundraising efforts, as all net proceeds will go to the Save Our Screen campaign to upgrade the theatre’s film technology to digital projection. Find out more at evanstheatre.ca.
This documentary was commissioned by MTS TV’s Community Expression, Video-on-Demand service, Stories From Home.
The broadcast premiere of "Warpaths: Every Town Had Soldiers" will take place on the Stories From Home service Nov. 8.
