POSTPONED – New date TBA. On February 4 join the Museum at Campbell River and Eden Robinson for a special evening streaming from the Tidemark Theatre!
Eden Robinson’s acclaimed book Monkey Beach has been adapted for the screen in this evocative new film directed by Loretta Sarah Todd. In this film, Robinson draws from her Haisla roots to tell a tale of supernatural mystery that captures the true essence of life on the West Coast.
Lisa (Grace Dove) returns from Vancouver to her Haisla family in Kitimaat Village when she is haunted by premonitions that have resurfaced in her psyche. She faces challenges in her attempt to save her brother (Joel Ouelette), whom she is convinced will suffer a premature death.
In the past year Robinson has been a contender on Canada Reads, had her book Son of a Trickster adapted for TV, seen Monkey Beach’s success on the Film Festival circuit, and has been our very own Writer in Residence at the Haig-Brown House in Campbell River. After the film Robinson will be available for a Q&A streaming from her home in Kitimat, BC.
