6pm - Sweetland DIR. CHRISTIAN SPARKES, 2023, NEWFOUNDLAND & LABRADOR | 105 MIN

SCREENING SPONSOR: CANADA MEDIA FUND

St John’s filmmaker, Christian Sparkes has two dramatic features in ALFF ’24. Where The King Tide is a fantasy film, Sweetland is rooted in the modern re-settlement experience of outport Newfoundland and reps a genre we’ll call Newfoundland Gothic. “This visually stunning film from Atlantic Canadian talent Christian Sparkes (Cast No Shadow, ALFF ‘16), and based on a book by acclaimed writer Michael Crummey, tells a story of outport Newfoundland and a man who loves the land of his birth so much he’s willing to remain there after others have left.

Including a brief but memorable appearance from 22 Minutes legend Mary Walsh, Sweetland features impeccable performances and a sparse but gutting script. The film eschews sentimentality and moves coolly through a series of tragedies in a fable-like manner.” - Martha Cooley, AFF.

Content advisory: strong language and peril. Recommended ages 13+ Genre: drama.
