Dock-u-mentaries: Culture and Traditional Boat Building in Lunenburg

December 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

On the east coast of Canada, a place whose name sounds strangely familiar. The small town of Lunenburg, west of Halifax, was founded in 1753 and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the 19th century, Lunenburg was one of the wealthiest towns in the British Empire, becoming prosperous through fishing and shipbuilding. This documentary is a touching portrait of a town and region transformed from a thriving fishing center and wooden shipbuilding after many years of decline into a bustling jewel on the Canadian coast.
