Film Screening: To Build a Fire

Fri September 22 to 26, 2017 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm

FREE with admission

French filmmaker Fx Goby’s animated adaptation of Jack London’s 1908 classic novel, To Build a Fire, depicts a trapper’s struggle for survival in the freezing temperatures of the Yukon in the late 1890s. This interpretation echoes the rugged Canadian landscape scenes depicted on the Minton porcelain dessert service featured in the lobby display The Canadian Odyssey of Lord Milton.

The screening on Sunday September 24 will be followed by an artist talk. Learn more here.
