The April Cultural Roundup

Hey look closely - that's me in the poster with the red beret. I was one of four people featured in a documentary on the passengers, and the children of the passengers, of the Saturnia, an immigrant ship that brought thousands of European and Italian immigrants to Canada in the 1950s through to the 1970s. I wrote a little bit about that experience here.The documentary premiered on April 22, 2012 (in English) and on April 29, 2012 (in Italian) on OMNI-TV.
