Saturday Afternoon - Session 2

On October 27th there is a second afternoon session from 2:40 – 4:50 pm. We will be showing two films in this session:

2:40 – 3:30 pm
What’s Your Beef? (2018; 38 min) 

A thought-provoking documentary about Nova Scotia grass-fed beef. With an introduction and Q&A with director Thor Lengies (PFF’s technical advisor, by the way!) and his partner Deborah Hertzfeldt.

3:30 – 4: 50 pm
Love, Scott (2018; 1 hour 16 min) 

When he was 27, musician Scott Jones was stabbed in New Glasgow, NS. He survived but was paralyzed from the waist down. Jones believes that he was attacked because he is openly gay. This documentary, by his close friend Laura Marie Wayne, is about his life after October, 2013, when a man tried to murder him.

There is no speaker with this film because both Scott Jones and Laura Marie Wayne are out of province.

Watch the trailer and CBC interview with Scott Jones.
