Monday January 9th, “Spoken Word Artists Open Mic”, with Ron Stock. 7:30-9:30. Share your poetry or prose.
Wednesday Jan 11th, Film: "The Investigation", directed by Anne Wheeler who describes the film in this way: “This true story follows a bungled and obstructed manhunt for a serial killer (there is no violence) and in particular follows two young RCMP officers who early on suspect the same man but because of legal red tape, jurisdictional chaos, incompetence, and territorial egos, the suspect gets away time and again. It's an investigation into the investigation. An extraordinary film in that it confronts a legal system and it's human weakness and at the same time celebrates the Officers who persisted against the poor leadership at the time. A cast of 52 men...and team of 22 lawyers...it was a challenge to make and explains why many crimes go unsolved.”
