FESTIVAL HIT and AWARD WINNING FILM ‘THE SUN AT MIDNIGHT’ TO HAVE A SPECIAL ONE-NIGHT ONLY VICTORIA SCREENING WITH LEAD ACTOR DUANE HOWARD IN ATTENDANCE! Tonight! Aug. 23
Set in the Alaskan Subarctic, The Sun At Midnight tells the story of an unusual friendship between a hunter obsessed with finding a missing caribou herd and a teenage rebel who gets lost while on the run. In the wake of her mother’s death, Lia, a 16 year-old urban princess, is sent to spend the summer with her Gwich’in grandmother in a small Subarctic community.
Desperate to return to city life she steals a boat and sets out into the vast Northern wilderness hoping to reach the nearest town. Totally lost, she is discovered by Alfred, a Gwich’in hunter who reluctantly takes her under his wing as he navigates the massive landscape in search of caribou. When Alfred is severely wounded in a bear attack Lia pushes on and fights to save both of their lives.
