Event description

Description

Join host MP Nathaniel Erskine-Smith for a FREE MOVIE NIGHT.

We're screening Bing Liu’s “Minding the Gap” at the Fox Theatre on May 23, 2019.

About Minding The Gap: Compiling over 12 years of footage shot in his hometown of Rockford, IL, in MINDING THE GAP, Bing Liu searches for correlations between his skateboarder friends' turbulent upbringings and the complexities of modern-day masculinity. As the film unfolds, Bing captures 23-year-old Zack's tumultuous relationship with his girlfriend deteriorate after the birth of their son and 17-year-old Keire struggling with his racial identity as he faces new responsibilities following the death of his father. While navigating a difficult relationship between his camera, his friends, and his own past, Bing ultimately weaves a story of generational forgiveness while exploring the precarious gap between childhood and adulthood.”

About our special guest: We will be joined by Dr. Danielle Martin, the Executive Vice-President and Chief Medical Executive of Women’s College Hospital (WCH), where she is also a practicing family physician. Danielle is leading the hospital's strategy to establish Women's Virtual, Canada's first virtual hospital, aimed at improving care and reducing health system costs in ways that can be scaled up across our health care system.

As a well-recognized media spokesperson, Danielle frequently provides commentary on health issues through her work as a health contributor at the CBC and a columnist in Chatelaine magazine. Her national bestselling book 'Better Now: Six Big Ideas to Improve Health Care for All Canadians', was released in 2017.
