The Guelph Film Festival, with our supporters at the National Film Board and the Central Student Association, invite you to join us at the World Premiere of the film "Sovereign Soil" on Sunday November 3 at 7:30pm in Thornborough Hall at the UofG. Following the film, we will have a food security conversation with filmmakers David Curtis and (former Guelphite) Andrew Connors, and Alison Blay-Palmer (Director of the Laurier Centre for Sustainable Food Systems).
A handful of unlikely farmers are growing everything from snow-covered Brussels sprouts to apples outside Dawson City, Yukon. These modern-day agrarians have carved out small patches of fertile soil in an otherwise unforgiving expanse of isolated wilderness to make a living and a life.
Dawson filmmaker David Curtis follows a German immigrant, a young family that taps birch trees for syrup, a First Nations youth, and a matriarch who can shoot and quarter a moose—exploring life, death, and time through the simple, rich day-to-day of people deeply tied to the wilds.
