A rare cultural glimpse
jtur88 from Michigan
18 December 2000
I caught the second half of this film on Cable, and found it to be a quiet
and sensitive portrayal of one of North America's least-known cultures.
the depression era (in which the film is set), the largest community of
Black Canadians was in, of all places, western Nova Scotia.
This is a Canadian made-for-TV film, and it will not blow the lid off
anything---but the viewer accustomed to films about African Americans will
see a quite different view of the culture. Every aspect of the film is at
least competent, so watching is not a waste of time.
