Montreal in the '50s
When You Give of Yourself. short film by Lynn Stopkewich. 5min46s
Synopsis: Mohammed and Yulanda Faris are generous and devoted patrons of the arts. Through dramatic re-creation, this short documentary captures the spirit of Montreal in the 1950s, the early days of their relationship, and their passion for music and dance. If we all danced more, says Yulanda Faris, we would be happier people.
I stumbled upon this wonderful heart-lifting film on the NFB (National Film Board of Canada) site today. It's one of those charming surprises that remind you, through their own special magic, about beauty, blessings and joy. Watch it; I'm sure you'll love it, too. It's about 5 minutes long.
