Digital Film Screening and Q&A - Percy
Date: Apr. 22, 2021 – Apr. 22, 2021
Time: 7:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Join us for a special Earth Day screening of Percy, staring Christopher Walken.
In collaboration with Oakville Festivals of Film and Art (OFFA), and Halton Environmental Network (HEN), we bring you a digital film screening of Percy.
Based on true events from a 1998 lawsuit, PERCY follows small-town farmer Percy Schmeiser (Christopher Walken), who challenges a major conglomerate when the company’s genetically modified (GMO) canola is discovered in the 70-year-old farmer’s crops.
As he speaks out against the company’s business practices, he realizes he is representing thousands of other disenfranchised farmers around the world fighting the same battle. Suddenly, he becomes an unsuspecting folk hero in a desperate war to protect farmers’ rights and the world’s food supply against what they see as corporate greed.
We are excited to bring back (on Zoom!) Sound Designer and Sheridan grad Tom Bjelic (Media Arts ‘90), along with special guest, Director Clark Johnson, and a representative from Halton Environmental Network.
The link for the film and Q&A will be sent in your confirmation email.
Date: Thursday, April 22, 2021
Time: 7:30 p.m. (screening). Moderated Live Q&A will be available following the screening.
