PDAC announces 2nd Reel Event screening

Thomasin McKenzie in Leave No Trace (2018)

“Leave No Trace” is the second screening of six independent films chosen from the Toronto International Film Festival that will screen in Portage la Prairie as part of the Portage & District Arts Centre’s Reel Event film series.

PDAC is one of only five official Film Circuit Centres in Manitoba offering viewings from the international film festival.

“Leave No Trace” Is set in the woods near Portland, Oregon. For many years, military veteran Will (Ben Foster) and his teenage daughter, Tom (Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie) have lived off the grid until one day they get caught. Turned over to the authorities they are eventually reunited and given a home to live in. Will is restless and eager to return to the independence and freedom in the woods. The movie follows their struggles through the difficult times they endure trying to adapt to this new way of life until they eventually make their way back to the wildness of the woods.

“By purchasing Reel Event Season Passes, my wife and I are committed to enjoying six movies that we would not normally go and see. The atmosphere at Reel Event is wonderful and needs to be experienced” said patron Doug Halmarson.

“Leave No Trace” will screen in the Prairie City Cinema on Wednesday, Nov. 21, at 7:30 p.m. Doors will open at 7 p.m. Season passes can be purchased at the arts centre for $48. Sponsored by Christianson Law Corporation.
