NFB Film Club

The NFB Film Club is back again this week with two more great films. Join us Saturday November 19 at 2:00pm for Uncommon Hero (short) and Prosecutor (documentary). Uncommon Hero is a short film that pays tribute to Paul Thompson, a man who has created a uniquely Canadian theatrical tradition through his passion, vision and tireless innovation. From Theatre Passe Muraille to the National Theatre School, Paul has mentored generations of actors and playwrights, forging a vibrant and distinctly Canadian theatre tradition. Prosecutor is a feature documentary that follows the Chief Prosecutor through the first trials of the newly formed International Criminal Court. Luis Moreno-Ocampo investigates and prosecutes some of the world's worst criminals for some of the world's worst crimes. He's a hero to genocide survivors, but has bitter enemies on both the Right and the Left. These two films are not to be missed. The NFB is a free event and everyone is welcome.
