The Price of Daily Bread

Plays before El Toro (Sunday, November 4 / 7 pm)


Directed by John Paskievich & Mike Mirus
1985, Canada, 16 min

Anthony Nahuliak, his wife and daughter, farm near Hodgson in the Manitoba Interlake, on land that has been in the family for generations. Now they must sell their farm equipment, house, and land to pay the bank. This movie seems one of Paskievich’s harshest yet it is also one of his most tender because it so succinctly narrates the very act of displacement.
