St. Catharines Museum and Welland Canals Centre Events

Film Screening: Risking Everything - Sept. 24, Oct. 1 and 8

Film Screening

Watch the film screening of Risking Everything: A Story of Niagara's Freedom Seekers Sept. 24, Oct 1. and  8, at 7 p.m. at the St. Catharines Museum & Welland Canals Centre. 

This 34-minute documentary tells a story about the many ways stories are told: in song and the singers, in clay and the hands that mold it, and in the landscapes that create us. Filmed, produced and co-directed by Emmy Award-winning and five-time Emmy nominee CBS cameraman Isadore Bleckman, Risking Everything is a story with many voices: those of Canadian ancestors who dreamed of freedom, of descendants and townspeople in the United States who remember the role their town played, in the words and hands of a sculptor, and in the voices of a renowned choir of young African Americans who carry forward the hopes of our ancestors. It’s a story that continues to be told every day.

This film screening is open to the public by donation and a part of the St. Catharines Museum's Open Late programming. The museum galleries and gift shop will be open to visitors until 8 p.m.
