In honour of National Canadian Film Day, we are pleased to work with Reel Canada's Indigenous Film Programme to offer a special screening of Monkey Beach. Monkey Beach is based on the novel of the same name, written by Eden Robinson (Haisla & Heiltsuk), one of Canada’s best writers. This supernatural mystery layers tragedy, humour and redemption. It tells the story of Lisa, a rebellious young woman who must accept her true heroic nature in order to save Jimmy, her brother who is lost at sea. Monkey Beach is set in the magnificent forests and waterways of the Pacific Northwest and the Haisla village of Kitamaat.
