Camp Kadimah

Since 1943, for six weeks every summer, Jewish children have gathered on the shores of Lake Willam, Nova Scotia at Camp Kadimah. As they pulled together through generations of song, spirit and tradition, they shaped a community that would shape their lives forever. Through interviews with alumni from every decade, vintage film and memorable music , this film shows the history of Camp Kadimah from its earliest days to the present . It also tells the story of the Jewish Communties of Atlantic Canada; how they came from Europe to settle in Canada and why Kadimah was founded.

Cost: $4.99

Six Minutes To Midnight

Based on true events – In the summer of 1939, school teacher Thomas Miller (Eddie Izzard) takes a last minute role teaching English at the Augusta-Victoria College, Bexhill-on-Sea, a finishing school on the south coast of England. Despite the political storm clouds forming across Europe, daughters of influential families in Nazi Germany learn deportment, Shakespeare and how to be faithful members of Hitler’s League of German Girls.

Under the watchful eye of their headmistress Miss Rocholl (Dame Judi Dench), and her devout assistant Ilse Keller (Carla Juri, Blade Runner 2049), the girls practice their English and learn how to represent the ideal of German womanhood. With a new world war imminent and a fog of resentment surrounding their presence, youth’s summer is running out for the girls...and for everyone.

When the body of a former teacher is discovered, it triggers a sequence of deadly events where the girls and Miss Rocholl discover a world where loyalty is more important than truth. An astonishing real-life tale Six Minutes to Midnight sees the very best in British screen craft allied with the brightest young acting talent from Europe, and will have you on the edge of your seat.

Cost: $12

Asia & White Eye

Asia’s motherhood has always been an ongoing struggle rather than an obvious instinct. Becoming a mother at a very early age has shaped Asia's relationship with her teenage daughter Vika. Despite living together, Asia and Vika barely interact with one another. Asia concentrates on her job as a nurse while Vika hangs out at the skate-park with her friends. Their routine is shaken when Vika's health deteriorates rapidly. Asia must step in and become the mother Vika so desperately needs. Vika's illness turns out to be an opportunity to reveal the great love within this small family unit.

Cost: $12
