Young George and the Dragon

Canada 2017, 90 min, Dir: Colin Curwen

Calgary’s new machine studios brings a fresh new take to this classic tale.  A young shepherd dreams of a bigger life than living in a burned out shack with his uncle, their little flock of sheep and his goat.  Young George shares his name with a famous Dragon Slayer, but little else.  A dragon is sighted in the valley, and the terrified townspeople turn to Young George to assume the mantle of his namesake.  FREE at 1:00 PM
