For this year’s Núna (now) film experience, we are pleased to announce a friendly collaboration with the Gimli Film Festival. On the evening of Friday, July 26, in the exotic lakeside environs of Gimli, we will offer a ninety-minute program on the theme of Fin ‘n’ Flora, with four movies that will have you looking at trees and marine life in a whole new way.

May We Grow (2013)

Erika MacPherson

22 mins.

Following the illness and removal of a boulevard elm tree, a quiet yet intense relationship builds with the remaining elm tree whose fate is uncertain.  Original music by John K. Samson and Christine Fellows.

Thompson (2012)

Mike Maryniuk

2 mins.

Hypnosis Highway. The effects of drinking magical ditch water near the Thompson Crystal Smelter.  Shot and edited in a truck on the way to Lynn Lake, Mb. near Thompson. This is exactly how the passing trees look after 10 hours.

Fish Finder 3000 (2012)

Mike Maryniuk

3 mins.

Introducing the first underwater camera made with nothing but burbot slime, shiner scales and leech resin. Fish simply can’t resist them

The North Atlantic Miracle (2012)

Örn Marinó Arnarson, Þorkell S. Harðarson, Arnar Þórisson

43 mins.

A lyrical documentary on the miraculous lifespan of the North-Atlantic Salmon. Shot in pristine Iceland, in and around one of the few rivers in the world that are home to the migrating salmon. The film provides picture-postcard views of Iceland and a strangely touching narrative, all told from the point of view of the fish itself.
