Documentary Film Screening: Midian Farm with Liz Marshall

If it had happened in America, Midian Farm would be a Hollywood script. Instead, more than four decades after the collapse of this back-to-the-land social experiment, this documentary unearths a transformative piece of family and Canadian history.

Written, directed, and filmed by award-winning local filmmaker Liz Marshall, who will be in attendance for the screening, Q&A and discussion following. (2018, 80 minutes)
