Limit is the Sky @ River John Library
Mar 30 @ 6:15 pm – 8:15 pm

NFB Film Club at the River John Library presents Limit is the Sky Thursday, March 30 at 6:15 p.m.

Join us for a National Film Board (NFB) movie at the library! Bring snacks (peanut-free please), all are welcome! About the film: ‘Limit Is the Sky’ is an unflinchingly honest portrait of a new generation of youth: diverse, ambitious, and driven by the seductive lure of big cash and the lifestyle it buys. The film follows six young Canadians, including refugees from the Middle East and Africa, who come to Fort McMurray, a city of immense sky and dusty winds. It is also the capital of the third-largest oil reserve in the world. “Fort Mac,” as it’s known, becomes a testing ground for these young dreamers as they struggle with their own perceptions of money, glory and self-worth, amid plummeting oil prices, an unpredictable economy and, most recently, awe-inspiring wildfires. (2016, 89 min)
