LONDON, ON. November 5, 2013. There’s a history in London that many may not know about. Well, that’s about to change with the documentary, The Light at the End of the Tunnel, being filmed by local filmmakers Steve Charles and Mark Drewe. Focusing on local residents of the 1800s, the documentary will unearth how London came to be the multicultural and vibrant city it is today.
On Friday November 15th at 7pm a fundraiser called Corks & Kegs will be taking place to not only inform guests of the project, but to also raise funds for both the documentary as well as the African Methodist Episcopal Church which is needing to relocate its premises. “The film is a deep, personal journey into the stories of some of the first minority settlers to the area and impact they had on the ideals of Canadian multiculturalism,” commented Charles and Drewe, the film’s co-directors and co-producers.
The beer and wine tasting event will be held at the Downtown Yoga Studio located at 236 Dundas Street featuring two floors of delicious food prepared by Organics on the Move, specially selected beer and wine supplied by Railway City Brewing Co and Quai du Vin Estate Winery, respectively, as well as plenty of displays for guests to interact with. “Corks and Kegs [the event] is a kick-off party so the party can learn about the film’s message while having fun and supporting the community,” says Drewe. Special guests will be on hand to speak at the event.
Tickets for the November 15th Corks & Kegs event are available now for $45 through the documentary website or at one of the participating sites. For more information about the documentary, the event and tickets please visit www.thelightdoc.ca.
