Join us for the Langara College Community lecture series. Presented by current and retired Langara faculty, the March 6 lecture is by Roger Holdstock.  

While Canadian cinema has a strong reputation abroad, Canadians themselves give it little attention. It is mostly through film festivals that the odd Canadian becomes aware of our film culture. One of the strengths and distinctions of Canadian film is its engagement with social and political issues. From "The Corporation" to "Incendies", Canadians have produced films engaged with the issues of their times and have shown the need for social action.

Free admission. Seating is limited.
