About 50 people gathered for a screening of the Messiah/Complex. The Against the Grain Theatre Company made it available to the parish of St. John’s. It was shown on an enormous screen, lent by Acadia University, that filled the sanctuary. The sound system, rented from Long and McQuaide enriched the experience.
We experienced the familiar words set to the familiar music against the diverse images of expert Indigenous artists filmed across this magnificent land we call Canada.
For some, breath was taken away. for others, a realignment of what the images can mean today was realised.
The evening was full and enriched us all.
