This week on BeCause & Effect, we sit down with Hilary McDonald, archeologist, photographer, and filmmaker, whose film We Haven’t Yet Said Thanks premiered at Cinematoba earlier this year.
Nolan and Hilary discuss shooting the film in Hilary’s hometown of Flin Flon, Manitoba, the culture of mining and the impact it has had on the town, as well as the arts scene in the small community. They chat about how We Haven’t Yet Said Thanks combines the themes of generosity, change, industry, globalization, with respect and gratitude for the land.
Watch We Haven’t Yet Said Thanks
Cinematoba, a partnership between The Winnipeg Foundation and the National Screen Institute, is an initiative focused on supporting local filmmakers as they share stories of local generosity from across Manitoba. The goal of the program is for all Manitobans to discover what generosity looks like in our province and was originally planned as part of The Foundation’s 2021 centennial celebrations but was delayed to 2022-2023 due to COVID.
