The Good Fight: Screening & Director Q&A
Sunday, March 12, 2017 – Sunday, March 12th, 2017
The Good Fight tells the moving story of Montreal’s David Fennario, a feisty, irascible artist determined to stick with the good fight. This despite being afflicted with Guillain-Barré syndrome.
Eminent documentary filmmaker Martin Duckworth chronicles Fennario’s life and work. The film describes his groundbreaking 1979 Balconville. Its main focus is the staging of Motherhouse and its 2014 premiere at Montreal’s Centaur Theatre. This searing story of Great War women munitions workers, this touching film portrait captures the life and work of the activist, the artist and the man. A Q&A will be hosted following the screening.
“When a final analysis is made of 20th-century Canadian theatre, the most significant political playwright will undoubtedly be David Fennario.” Canadian Book Review Annual
