SAW Video is excited to host another screening as part of The Common Cinema, an initiative that has seen our Knot Project Space operate as a small-scale community movie theatre featuring evening screenings with community partners over the past week.

On Thursday, December 6th we’re honoured to present the sixth screening in this free series, renowned American filmmaker Kevin Jerome Everson’s Tonsler Park (2017).
