A SPECIAL FILM SCREENING – THE GARDENER
Join members and friends of the Caledon Hills Bruce Trail Club
on Sunday Oct 21st
11:00 am or 2:30 pm at the Gorge Cinema in Elora
Beth Gilhespy, Bruce Trail Conservancy CEO, opens the program with stunning visuals highlighting precious lands preserved and rehabilitated by the Bruce Trail Conservancy and its volunteers.
And then – THE GARDENER – a mesmerizing, award-winning Canadian film from Quebec filmmaker Sebastien Chabot, offers a rare glimpse into a hidden gem – the 20 acres of Les Quatre Vents – a garden overlooking the St Lawrence River at La Malbaie, and the man who created the world-renowned gardens, a self-taught horticulturist, Frank Cabot.
THE GARDENER features members of the Cabot family and friends, including former Governor General Adrienne Clarkson. Filmmaker Chabot says, “…a garden is much more than a postcard. It heals the soul”. The film also notes the synergy between the gardens and the next-door walking trails of the Centre Ecologique. The Globe and Mail describes the film as a “cinematically exquisite stroll”. Tribute.ca says “…one is left at the end with a sense of the ecstatic lift of beauty sometimes radiating peace and purity, other times entering with a jolt of surprise. Give yourself a treat and see this show more than once”.
