True story Canadian film set for Remembrance Day week in Mile Zero

Wednesday in DC on Nov. 9, in honour of Remembrance Day.

A new Canadian film will be screening for one day only this week in recognition of Remembrance Day.

Brotherhood, the true Canadian story of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew and their ill-fated canoeing adventure - screens Wednesday at Center Cinema on November 9, in honour of Veterans’ Week and Remembrance Day.

Brotherhood follows a band of teenage boys who set out across Ontario’s Balsam Lake in a 30-foot war canoe, with two camp leaders, and are capsized by a deadly summer storm.

As the camp leaders were veterans of The Great War and the Brotherhood of St. Andrew camp was comprised of boys left fatherless by that conflict, audiences are invited to experience the story in the spirit of Remembrance Day.

“I always felt Brotherhood was a sort of war film, without any war in it,” says British Columbian director Richard Bell.

BC actors Brendan Fehr and Brendan Fletcher star in the survival / adventure drama, which won a Canadian Screen Award for Achievement in Visual Effects.

Brotherhood has played at over 60 theatres since its initial release.
