DUNNVILLE -The Bohemian Friday
Cafe stage is set for a free viewing of the Open Road film, Bold Native, on
Jan. 17 at 8 p.m. Dylan Powell, a St. Catharines resident who grew up in
Dunnville, said he has a passion for screening "engaging documentary films,"
particularly ones that revolve around the subject of animal liberation.
The young animal activist recently spearheaded a musical Folk Out
Festival at the Queen Street Cafe, with all proceeds raised from the evening
donated to animal rights organizations. And when he approached Bohemian
Friday owner Dick Passmore about showing Bold Native, Passmore quickly
agreed to provide the free venue, adding he plans to showcase additional
engaging films in the future.
Directed by Denis Henry Hennelly, Bold
Native is a feature film with a storyline that documents the animal
agribusiness and the animal liberation front, Powell said.
website for Open Road Films says it all: "Like a map to a local hideout
drawn on a dive bar napkin, an Open Road film brings the viewer beyond
expectations into a new adventure.
"Like a story told lounging about
a campfire in a remote mountain village, an Open Road film excites the
senses and enlivens the mind. Like rolling into a new city at 5 a.m. and
sleeping in your car before grabbing breakfast at a street corner diner, an
Open Road film values experience over comfort, daring over safety and
mythology over conventional wisdom."
