About Monsoon

(2014) Director/Writer: Sturla Gunnarsson. 108 minutes.

Captured in gorgeous, ultra high-definition 4K video, Sturla Gunnarsson’s documentary profiles not just expert meteorologists but also farmers, fishermen, city dwellers and even bookies - real citizens whose lives, rain or shine, are profoundly affected by the monsoons.

By treating this natural phenomenon with the respect it commands, this Canada’s Top Ten audience award-winner becomes an epic journey into a phenomenon many call “the soul of India.”

With swells of music by the Bombay Dub Orchestra, Monsoon is wet, wild and utterly astonishing.

FREE but space is limited; please register online to attend, by calling 604 299-8955, or in person at the library.
