A Drummer's Dream

On a remote farm in Ontario cottage country seven of the world’s master drummers gather to inspire young musicians to connect with the powerful rhythms of nature – and blow the roof off the barn and the ducks out of the water.
Featuring Nasyr Abdul Al-Khabyyr, Dennis Chambers, Kenwood Dennard, Horacio “El-Negro” Hernandez, Giovanni Hidalgo, Mike Mangini and Raul Rekow, the film serves up a rich stew of mind-blowing performances in rock, jazz, Latin, fusion, and soul. When they are not learning how to canoe, the drummers teach, joke, and swap road stories about musicians they’ve played with (Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Carlos Santana). They share a profound musical philosophy driven by love, compassion, and the joy of life.

Showing Jan 29, 5pm @ The Peterborough Public Library

What else can you get for $1 an hour?

People have been asking me about weekend passes for ReFrame and everyone has been impressed by what a great deal they are. Then I started thinking, with passes priced at only $25 - $12 for students/unwaged - and the festival running 25+ hours over the 3 days, that's only $1 an hour  - or under 50 cents for students/unwaged!

To go to the movie theatres these days will cost you over $5 on a cheap night, and that's only 2 hours of entertainment. With ReFrame, you also get to see a wide range of films from around the world on everything from human rights issues to the life of a humming bird.

At $1 an hour, how can you go wrong?
