National Canadian Film Day Virtual Screening: Rustic Oracle

1PM

Cost: Free

 

Woodland Cultural Centre will be celebrating National Canadian Film Day with a digital film screening of the powerful film, Rustic Oracle.

A moving portrait of a family in crisis, Rustic Oracle tells the story of eight-year-old girl who joins her mother in a desperate race against time to search for her older sister who’s gone missing from their Mohawk community. While their journey to find answers is one that no family should go through, their shared hope helps mother and daughter come together in love amidst difficult circumstances.

Join us April 21st, 2021 at 1PM for our virtual screening and check out some of the other Family Events and Downloadable activities on the Canadian Film Day website! Bring your popcorn, and we will see everyone in their homes for this online event.
