Oct 23, 2014 7:00 PM
Winnipeg, MB

Since the return of the film elements to the Winnipeg vaults of the Hudson’s Bay Company Archives, Kevin Nikkel of Five Door Films has collaborated with visual historian, Peter Geller, to restore The Romance of the Far Fur Country from the surviving reels of footage.  They have done this from digitized copies created at the time of their transfer back to Winnipeg and by consulting archival records documenting the creation of the film. The re-release of The Romance of the Far Fur Country re-assembles the film elements to the original 2 hour running time and adds a contemporary score by composer Nathan Reimer.

 

The original film was screened by the Hudson’s Bay Company in local theatres in Canada in and around 1920, but all mention of the film had disappeared from view since that time. No known copy of Romance of the Far Fur Country exists in Canada.


 

Admission is free.
