As a little extra incentive to attend our AGM, we will have a door prize! Donated by the Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre – 2 tickets to the April 1st showing of GLORY by Shay Kuebler. Inspired by the epic battles of childhood and a passion for action films, Glory examines the complexities of violent behaviour and its glorification in our media-drenched culture. Through a cinematic lens, with first-person video material, Glory takes the audience through multiple images and expressions on the amplification of experience and violence in society.
