Filmmaker Mike Downie will answer questions from the audience following a free public screening of Gord Downie’s Secret Path in Concert on Friday, November 17.
Filmed at Toronto’s Roy Thomson Hall in October 2016, the one-hour film combines a live performance of Gord Downie’s album “Secret Path” with footage from the animated film and moments backstage.
A multimedia project conceived by the Downie brothers to address mistreatment of Indigenous children and families by the residential school system, “Secret Path” encompasses a graphic novel by Jeff Lemire in addition to the film and the Juno award-winning album.
Friday’s screening is set for 11:30 a.m. in Studio A in the basement of Lambton Tower.
