Doc focuses on Canada’s beautiful natural parks

By Jordyn Marcellus

Not only does Geoff Morrison, director of No Heart Feelings have his feature film in the festival, he also produced National Parks Project: Gros Morne, playing at the Plaza Theatre Saturday, September 26 as part of the festival.

Filmed at Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland, National Parks Project: Gros Morne is a hypnotic documentary echoing the Group of Seven, focusing on the natural beauty of the Canadian wilderness.

“This is our first screening in Canada and we’ll have a live musical score from a bunch of the Flemish Eye record label artists,” says Morrison. “So they’re doing a live musical re-interpretation of the soundtrack.”

Producer Ryan J. Noth, another co-director for No Heart Feelings will also be in attendance — with tentative plans to remix the documentary after the first showing. Not only will Flemish Eye artists be playing for the audience, but label founder Ian Russell will be opening hearth and home for both Morrison and Noth.

“I think we’re crashing on his couch” laughs Morrison.
