Barbarians on the Silver Screen!
The response to Sarah Race’s documentary, Barbarian Press, has been excellent and over the past six months it has screened at the largest documentary film festival in the world, Hot Docs in Toronto, and locally at DOXA. It even traveled to Washington, DC to screen at one of the oldest documentary festivals in the world, AFI Docs. We attended the May 7th showing in Vancouver and were brought up front with Sarah for a Q&A afterwards. Sarah’s film is really wonderful – informative, visually beautiful, and touching. We’re very grateful to her.
There will be a celebration of these successes, and a fundraiser (to support Sarah's goal of submitting the film to the other festivals). The event takes place November 4th at Bean Around the World on Cambie and Hastings in Vancouver. Doors open at 8 p.m and tickets
are $10, and will include a free beer or glass of wine. All proceeds will go towards festival fees and to the musician that provided the soundtrack. You can buy tickets at the door (or on eventbrite here).
The facebook event page is here. And you can click here for a trailer
and more information about the film.
