A Walk In The Woods


In this new comedy adventure, celebrated travel writer, Bill Bryson, instead of retiring to enjoy his loving and beautiful wife, and large and happy family, challenges himself to hike the Appalachian Trail – 2,200 miles of America’s most unspoiled, spectacular and rugged countryside from Georgia to Maine. The peace and tranquility he hopes to find, though, is anything but, once he agrees to being accompanied by the only person he can find willing to join him on the trek – his long lost and former friend Katz, a down-on-his-luck serial philanderer who, after a lifetime of relying on his charm and wits to keep one step ahead of the law – sees the trip as a way to sneak out of paying some debts and sneak into one last adventure before its too late. The trouble is, the two have a completely different definition of the word, “adventure”. Now they’re about to find out that when you push yourself to the edge, the real fun begins.

Operation Husky


The Operation Husky Story
Sunday, November 8 @ 2 p.m.
The film explores the bonds of friendship that form among people who have never met as they undertake an arduous journey: a trek 300 demanding kilometers through the central mountains of Sicily in the hottest month of the year. They have one thing in common — a determination to honour the sacrifice of Canadian soldiers during WW2 by reclaiming lost history. Some walk in the footsteps of their fathers, seeking to learn something important that their dads never talked about. Most know they don’t have what it takes physically to complete the journey, but are determined to try.
They are part of Operation Husky 2013 – an unprecedented series of commemorative events that take place over three weeks in July 2013 in Sicily, on the 70th anniversary of the original Operation Husky in 1943. They have come a great distance — 7000 km and an ocean away from their comfortable homes and lives in Canada. Now they are embarking on a physically-challenging 20-day odyssey that takes them to unexpected emotional and spiritual places.
As they travel, they experience the meaning of remembrance in ways no other Canadians have done before them. As they walk, we learn about Canadian sacrifices of the past and our country’s role in the liberation of Europe from fascism in WW2. And how much it means to the people who live where those battles were fought, and about their losses too.
Max Fraser and award-winning author Mark Zuehlke are teaming up for this special Remembrance tour —  Max with this brand-new documentary and Mark with his new book “Through Blood and Sweat – A remembrance trek across Sicily’s WWII battlegrounds.
