Six Primrose is an award-winning feature-length documentary film about the power of food to build community.
The documentary film Six Primrose celebrates community spirit and the individuals that make the Darmouth North Community Food Centre a vibrant and essential part of the neighbourhood.
Through a 'strengths-first' approach the Food Centre increases access to healthy food for low-income Canadians while proving that food can be a transformative force in our communities.
A daily stream of people comes in through the door for a cup of coffee or a meal and to share their knowledge and learn new things. They volunteer in the kitchen, act as peer advocates, and grow food on the urban farm. More people come every day.

Dementia, Dad & Me
The onset of his dementia brought a dramatic change to the relationship Hannah has with her father. Dementia, Dad and Me follows the two of them as they find new ways to connect, and to navigate the delicate transition of their roles from father–daughter to caregiver and cared for.
My father’s deep attachment to his archive of photographs and keepsakes is a touchstone for our conversations, and while naturally an introvert he has always had strong recollections of the stories which shaped his family’s life.

"Six Primrose gave me a feeling of optimism, and how community
and social movements are an effective means of organizing
especially on the issue of poverty and food insecurity.”
