A Last Resort at the Shadbolt Centre
The story is one that resonates around the country: a Canadian woman meets a man from another nation, and they decide to struggle through bureaucratic and cultural obstacles to be together. As if relationships weren’t hard enough in the first place. In the case of A Last Resort, which continues at the Tremors Festival till Saturday (April 28) and gets an extended run at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts from Wednesday to Saturday (May 2 to 5), the tale is a very personal one for local film artist Candelario Andrade and his wife, playwright Camille Gingras. In it, they reveal what it was like for him to leave Mexico and work with her, here, to build that elusive concept of home.
