“A MIGHTY DREAM”
On Sunday, November 20, 2005, a unique event took place in Ottawa. This was the world premier of “A Mighty Dream,” a video celebrating not only the 25th anniversary of the Sasquatch Literary Performance Series, but of the oral tradition in Canada as a bridge between ethnicities, generations, genders, and sensitivities.
An earlier, incomplete version of the video has already been seen by some Ottawans. But now the video unfolds in its full splendor, a bouquet of poems honoring the vitality, the many-facetedness and warm spirit of inclusiveness of the Canadian literary scene.
We believe DVDs of the video will make excellent Christmas gifts for all who value the triumphant oral tradition, a tradition that has survived wars, cataclysms, famines, plagues, massacres, the rise and fall of civilizations, the birth and death of languages, and which survives today wherever human beings have the power of speech.
Come share “A
Mighty Dream” with us. Orders for DVDs are currently being accepted.
