The Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre (BCM&CC) is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the National Canadian Film Day by screening two award winning films that "highlight the power, diversity, and craft of Canadian film."

In an April 11 media release, on April 19 BCM&CC will offer two showings.

At 10am, Beans promises a gripping drama directed by Mohawk-Canadian filmmaker Tracey Deer. The 2020 film explores the 1990 Oka Crisis through the eyes of a young Mohawk girl named Tekehentahkhwa, nicknamed “Beans,” whose life is transformed by these events.

Then at 1pm, C.R.A.Z.Y. promises a moving coming-of-age drama set in Quebec during the 1960s and 1970s. This 2005 film tells the story of Zac, a young gay man navigating homophobia while growing up with four brothers and his father. Directed by the late Jean Marc Vallée, a Canadian filmmaker, editor and screenwriter from Montreal.

Both films are rated 14A. National Canadian Film Day is presented by Reel Canada.
