Throughout the entire “Listen Up NWT” project with the Gryphon Trio last season, from launch concert to three-week school tour of six communities to rehearsals and show at Yellowknife’s Northern Arts and Cultural Centre, we were followed around by a documentary film crew led by PJ Marcellino. This weekend at the Yellowknife Film Festival, a 30-minute preview of the film Way Up North will be screened, along with live music and a Q&A session.
If you’re in Yellowknife, check it out and let me know what you think! I wish I could be there — we launched the project one year ago, and I have such vivid and happy memories of the whole experience, I would be thrilled to visit the North again and again. Not sure when the complete film is due to be finished, but this screening will give you a significant taste. Click the Yellowknife Film Festival link for information and tickets.
