A force of nature

On Friday, March 4, the Friday Flicks Film Club on Quadra Island is presenting the new Sturla Gunnarsson documentary Force of Nature: The David Suzuki Movie.

A special aspect of the program is that the subject of the film, Dr. David Suzuki will be in attendance to introduce the film and to answer questions afterward.

A Canadian icon, Suzuki has narrated countless documentaries but has never been subject of one, until now. A Special Presentation at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival and winner of the Cadillac People’s Choice Documentary Award. Gunnarsson’s (Such a Long Journey, Rare Birds) latest offering begins at a sold-out speaking engagement in Vancouver, where Suzuki is addressing climate change. The speech is riveting and the documentary could easily remain bound to Suzuki’s words, resulting in something very much akin to An Inconvenient Truth. But it’s here where Gunnarsson’s film becomes truly unique. The passionate environmentalist’s legacy lecture is entwined with candid interviews in which he reflects on his life and shares deeply personal stories, revealing a side previously unseen.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. with the show starting at 7:45 at the Quadra Community Centre. Tickets are available at the door $8 regular and $7 seniors and students.
