Everyone is invited to attend the Premiere Showing of a short documentary film called "Forgotten Prairie". This event is being held on Saturday October 14th at the East Coulee School Museum, at 5:00PM. The museum is located in the town of East Coulee, a 10 minute drive down the valley on Highway 10, from Drumheller. This location was selected for its spectacular setting in the Alberta Badlands, as well as to impart a sense of the mood of the documentary.
I will be in attendance at the premiere, as will my friends Chris Doering, Connie Biggart and Rueben Tschetter. Chris and Connie are the BigDoer team, historians, researchers, and writers of the "Off the Beaten Path" website. Rueben is an independent filmmaker and the writer and producer of this documentary.
We all set out together on the Easter Long Weekend last spring to explore and document some ghost towns down in southwestern Saskatchewan. This film documents that trip.
I will have a small selection of my prints available for viewing at this event. Refreshments will be served. Hope to see many of my friends and supporters there...
