If you want to celebrate Canada Day or all things Canadian, or just want to watch good movies for free, you might consider the site for the Canadian National Film Board, or the nfb. They are all free, even for us Americans and features thousands of movies, especially documentaries and shorts, about Canada and it’s history. There’s a doc about Joey Smallwood, premier of Newfoundland in the 70′s,A Little Fellow from Gambo – The Joey Smallwood Story, or the terrorist groups in Canada in the 70’s , Action: the October Crisis of 1970. There are animated movies, like Satellites of the Sun, from 1974, directed by Leonard Goldsmith, which takes us on a tour of our solar system, and there’s a doc about the great Leonard Cohen, Ladies and Gentlemen, Leonard Cohen from directors Douglas Britton and Don Owen. But to me, the greatest treasure on the nfb site is the trove of movies by and about Indigenous native people of Canada, like To Wake Up the Nakota Language, directed by Louise BigEagle,telling the story of Armand McArthur, one of the last fluent Nakota language speakers, trying to keep his language alive, and to teach it and his culture to others, or Holy Angels, a short doc on the story of Lena Wandering Spirit, who was one of the 150,000 Indigenous children taken from their families and home and sent to residential school, in the 1960′s. There’s so much to watch and enjoy and learn about Canada, even when it’s not Canada Day! So tune in and enjoy!
