Murder on The Orient Express (114 min., PG13)
When a luxurious train is stranded in the snow and a man is murdered in his compartment, the crime is investigated by a famous detective who is also a passenger. He discovers that many of the passengers knew the victim from years before in connection with the kidnapping of a three year old heiress who was killed even though her ransom had been paid. When the murder victim’s true identity is revealed as the kidnapper/killer, suspicion falls on 13 travelers who are linked to the original case through their ties to the child’s family and the tragedy.

Reserve 107:  Reconciliation on the Prairies (30 min.)

For decades, stories have spread throughout the village of Laird, Saskatchewan. It has been said that First Nation descendants of an old treaty have visited shopkeepers and town officials. The First Nations that came to the town, starting in the 1970s, insisted that a treaty signed between their people and the government of Canada states the land of the locals actually belong to an Indigenous First Nation. But when a group of Mennonites and Lutherans in the town of Laird discover that the land they live on is in fact the former reserve of the Young Chippewayan First Nation, they are forced to acknowledge the history that has brought them to their present confrontation. A chief and descendant of the Young Chippewayan Band decide to invite the local community to a meeting at the central site of the former reserve as members in the town remain on edge. But an inevitable encounter at the town’s historic site compels the characters into a surprising discovery. Myths, assumptions and fears are shattered as this old injustice is about to provide an opportunity for friendship and renew a fierce determination to repair the wrongs of the past.

Cake and refreshments will be served.

Co-sponsored by Prince Albert Chapter of The Council of Canadians.
