Film Screening: Risking Everything 

Tuesdays, September 24, October 1 & 8; 7 p.m. 

Watch the film screening of Risking Everything: A Story of Niagara's Freedom Seekers 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, directed and produced by Emmy Award-winning and 5-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 & Gift Shop will be open to visitors until 8 p.m.
