Winnipeg, MB

Since the return of the film elements to the Winnipeg vaults of the Hudson’s Bay Company Archives, Kevin Nikkel of Five Door Films has collaborated with visual historian, Peter Geller, to restore The Romance of the Far Fur Country from the surviving reels of footage.  They have done this from digitized copies created at the time of their transfer back to Winnipeg and by consulting archival records documenting the creation of the film. The re-release of The Romance of the Far Fur Country re-assembles the film elements to the original 2 hour running time and adds a contemporary score by composer Nathan Reimer.

 

The original film was screened by the Hudson’s Bay Company in local theatres in Canada in and around 1920, but all mention of the film had disappeared from view since that time. No known copy of Romance of the Far Fur Country exists in Canada.


 

Admission is free.

 

Since seating is limited please contact us to reserve your seat: (204) 945-4949 or sara.frederick@gov.mb.ca.

Join us on October 25th, 2014 from 1pm to 5pm for the 2014 Laneway House Tour where we open a roster of six beautiful, modern lane houses along with an original c. 1890s character lane home. This home has all the detail and charm of a grand Victorian home, just in much smaller scale. To fill out the century and show a bit of versatility in the concept of densifying without demolition, we will also open a strata infill built in 1989 that was designed by well-respected Canadian architect Paul Merrick. Made possible by variations in neighbourhood zoning, this infill is larger than most lane homes and can be independently owned. Come experience over 100 years of living on the lane and tour the roots of laneway housing, the variations that zoning allows, and the modern creations that are densifying our neighbourhoods while retaining character and heritage homes.


$30 or $23 for eligible students
