Close to Home: films of Phillip Borsos - Oct 4 & 5

Please join this two evening celebration of the films of Phillip Borsos. Not only was Phillip a brilliant Canadian film director but he was also a Mayne Islander, owner of Hardscrabble Farm until his death in 1995 at the all too young age of 41.

Friday October 4 The Grey Fox, the story of the old stagecoach bandit Bill Miner, will be screened along with two of Phillip's short industrial films.

On Saturday October 5 don't miss Far From Home: the Adventures of Yellow Dog, much of it filmed here on Mayne Island. For a time in 1994 Phillip and his crew made this quiet island feel like the centre of the film world.

Phillip's brother Jeremy will introduce the films and Mayne Islanders who were involved in and/or have memories of those Yellow Dog days will undoubtedly have memories to share.

Both night's screenings will be at the Ag Hall at 7:30 pm.
