The Saint John Newcomers Centre will start the evening with an opportunity for community discussion and networking ahead of the screening.

——

Over 65 million people around the world have been forced from their homes to escape famine, climate change and war in the greatest human displacement since World War II. Human Flow, an epic film journey led by the internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei, gives a powerful visual expression to this massive human migration. The documentary elucidates both the staggering scale of the refugee crisis and its profoundly personal human impact.

Captured over the course of an eventful year in 23 countries, the film follows a chain of urgent human stories that stretches across the globe in countries including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, and Turkey. Human Flow is a witness to its subjects and their desperate search for safety, shelter and justice: from teeming refugee camps to perilous ocean crossings to barbed-wire borders; from dislocation and disillusionment to courage, endurance and adaptation; from the haunting lure of lives left behind to the unknown potential of the future. Human Flow comes at a crucial time when tolerance, compassion and trust are needed more than ever. This visceral work of cinema is a testament to the unassailable human spirit and poses one of the questions that will define this century: Will our global society emerge from fear, isolation, and self-interest and choose a path of openness, freedom, and respect for humanity?

LAST IN LEAGUE
Writer/Producer: Gretchen Kelbaugh
Duration: 56 minutes

In 2006, a Tim Horton’s in southern New Brunswick sponsored the first local hockey team of women over 40, launching a new league. The team enjoyed being on top for a brief year, before other teams joined. Ten years later, the Lucky Puckers can’t win a game. As the season nears an end, the last business in town willing to sponsor them, Andy’s Meat Packers, pulls sponsorship. Playing their last season, three desperate members plot a way out of the mire, inspired by teammate Karen. Dr Karen Rx volunteers as Team Trainer. She is known for her 3-minute patient-visits and her enthusiasm for prescriptions. Soon Jen overcomes her anxiety, Gretchen leaps the boards like a pro and Cindy’s slap shot exceeds the coach’s. But when teammate Tracey gets suspicious of these unbelievable abilities, she goes undercover, setting off a chain of events that sinks the team so low there is no possible way out. Or is there?

Synopsis

A feature-length documentary-memoir that questions why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not labeled on food products in the United States and Canada, despite being labeled in 64 countries around the world.
Shot over a span of ten years, the film follows the grassroots struggle to label GMOs, exposing the cozy relationship between the biotech industry and governments. The film is anchored in the moving story of the filmmaker’s relationship to her mom, a prolific gardener, seed saver, and food activist who battled cancer during the film’s production. Interweaving the personal and the political, the film uses family home video archives and colorful recipe and farming vignettes from the filmmaker’s award-winning PBS cooking show, in a
mouth-watering celebration of homegrown food. The mother-daughter
investigative journey debunks the myth that GMOs are needed to feed the world, making a strong case for a more transparent and sustainable food system.
