Event Notes

× In the Quiet and Dark is a cinematic, visceral and lyrical exploration of our last remaining Hemlock Forest told through one woman’s journey to try and save them. This tree, a stalwart foundation species, is under attack by a tiny insect - the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid. This is a classic and tragic ecological David and Goliath story. If the Hemlock die off, as scientists are predicting they will within the next three years, it will be cataclysmic for our forests.

We are proud to present In the Quiet and Dark by celebrated documentary filmmaker Nance Ackerman. Nance has been making images and film around the world for over 30 years. She also composes soundtracks with her partner Jamie Alcorn at their studio, Heartstring Productions in Tupperville in the Annapolis Valley. Nance and Jamie will be present along with local experts who will speak to the state of the forests in Nova Scotia.

Screening, panel discussion and fundraiser for the Hemlock Foundation.
