Welcome to the Kanopy Film Club. Each month we will offer two screenings of a film (documentary or movie) in Port Macquarie Library’s meeting room. BOOKING is ESSENTIAL – numbers are strictly limited.
May’s selection is award-winning documentary Gardening with Soul: a year in the garden with Sister Loyola Galvin.
Running Time: 101 mins / Year 2013. Filmmakers: Jess Feast. Features: Sister Loyola Galvin
A feature length documentary following a year in the garden with 90-year-old Sister Loyola Galvin. Sister Loyola’s optimism is infectious and it’s fed every day by her love of gardening.
Themes of faith, aging and compassion sit alongside the practicalities of community life, issues within the Catholic Church and the importance of good compost in this intimate, funny and moving portrait of a woman approaching the end of her life.
Winner of Best Documentary at the New Zealand Film Awards.
“Warm hearted and inspiring, … you will not have a better time at the cinema this year!” – National Radio
