The Table CFC to host a film screening of new documentary, Six Primrose

The story of how food brought a Canadian community together

 

The Table will bring a powerful new documentary about food, friendship and community development filmed in the community of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia to Perth on March 31st. Six Primrose is a film by Truefaux Films which brilliantly captures the vision of Community Food Centres and how its quest to address issues of the food insecurity, poor health and isolation brought a community together.

The Table is screening the film and hosting a panel discussion to bring awareness of the work they. The Dartmouth North Community Centre and Table are two of the Community Food Centres across Canada that are bringing people together to grow, cook, share and advocate for good food for all in partnership with Community Food Centres Canada.

 Filmmaker and Truefaux co-founder John Hillis introduces viewers to Jessica, Charlie, Oras, Ken and Amanda, telling their individual stories of what led them to the Community Food Centre, and more importantly, what keeps them coming back.

 “Six Primrose has brought me in touch with a group of extraordinary people, who face their problems with determination and their neighbours with empathy,” says Hillis. “I’ve been making films now for over twenty years, and none have made me feel this way. I love walking through the doors of the Community Food Centre.”

 The screening will take place March 31st at 1pm at the Full Circle Theatre at 26 Craig St. in Perth, ON followed by a panel discussion with local food security advocates and members of the Table staff.
