Vancouver International Film Festival Presents Monkey Beach September 24th @ 7pm!!  Admission is Free!!

Abandoning East Van for Kitimaat Village, Lisa (Grace Dove) must save her brother (Joel Outlette) from a tragic fate she’s foreseen since childhood.  Granted, there’s also the matter of contending with the mystical creatures in the nearby woods. Adapting to Eden Robinson’s book, Loretta Sarah Todd crafts a modern epic about reconnecting with the land, it denizens and the secrets it holds.  Monkey Beach is also a testament to Indigenous women’s ability to not just endure trials but emerge from them empowered.

This is rated 14A
