    It's the world premiere of the flick tracing the story of a growing community of Filipino workers who trekked halfway around the world to take jobs in the stark interior of Labrador, sharing their journey as they build a life in a strange new land. A cultural performance and story telling session rounds out the evening. 902-425-7770

    Family Bonds & Belonging

    Through Nov. 3


    An exploration and meditation on what family means, this exhibition promises to "celebrate Canadian identity by exploring families and family history, linking past to present and province to nation." Originally produced by the Royal BC Museum, it offers a collection of stories from early and contemporary families, those who came as immigrants and those who have always been here, while touching on themes of "belonging, growth and change, gatherings and generations." 902-425-7770

    Pier 21: The Musical

    Sat., June 29, 2 p.m. and June 30-July 8, 11 a.m. & 2 p.m.

    ,
    The historic immigration site turned museum shares its backstory in song and dance with this site-specific piece of theatre. From the arrival of European refugees in 1939 to the departing of World War Two soldiers to the war brides that took their first steps in Canada while walking through the Pier, it's a time warp along the seams of the multicultural quilt of the settler state. Held in the museum's Andrea & Charles Bronfman Theatre, the show runs daily from June 29-Jul 8, with no show on Jul 3. 902-425-7770
