Canusa Street: In an absurd small town cut in half by the Vermont/Quebec border, a jaded US Border Patrol attempts to solve local cases while maintaining a fierce rivalry with her twin sister in the Canadian Mounties.
Filmmaker: Zack Morrison
Game of Stones: This is the story of the history of curling in Chisholm Minnesota. The story is told through the original founder of the club who is currently 102 years of age and through the successful curlers from our little town of 5,000.00 people. Our club has many National Champions and an Olympic Gold Medalist.
Filmmaker: Mark Wangensteen (in attendance for Q and A)
Supper Club: Co-owners Paul David Marturano and Rob Russo of the Iron Range Supper Club Valentini's Supper Club reflect on their contrasting immigrant heritage from Italy and Vietnam, and the roles that their mothers have played in their culinary careers.
Filmmaker: Matthew Koshmrl (in attendance for Q and A)
Reclaimed: To most people, Chisholm, MN is barely a dot on the map. But this small town on the Mesabi Iron Range once provided the ore that built the tanks and planes of WWII and the skyscrapers of New York. Chisholm built America and the people prospered. But as time went on, the demand for Chisholm’s ore declined. Now, the community and industry that built this town are banding together to revitalize a forgotten piece of America. Can Chisholm make the leap from mining town to outdoor capital?
Producer: Jordan Metsa (in attendance for Q and A)
