On Friday, Sept. 16th, at 7pm at Conserver House, 180 St. John St., Fredericton, Cinema Politica Fredericton will screen Last Chance (Paul d’Entremont, 2012, 84 min.)
The documentary by Paul d’Entremont, a native of Nova Scotia, retraces the turbulent journeys of five people who flee their native countries to escape homophobic violence. They come from Jamaica, Colombia, Lebanon, Egypt and Nicaragua, and are seeking asylum in Canada. They face hurdles integrating, fear deportation and nervously await a decision that will change their lives forever. One critic says: “The film also succeeds in breathing life into the challenge to preserve the refuge of Canadian society from the forces of narrow minded conservatism.” This film is in various languages, with subtitles in English.
Join Cinema Politica Fredericton for an optional informal discussion after the film with members of the co-hosting group: Refugees Welcome Fredericton.
