Our First Friday Film Festival (FFFF) is a monthly program that extends the opportunity to view documentary films in Antigonish throughout the fall, winter and spring months. Recent themes included music, dance, art, animal rights, human rights and the environment. Choices include films that express the inherent mystery and intrigue of life, history and circumstances while celebrating challenging, creative and investigative storytelling.

In the Dos Erres massacre during Guatemala’s decades-long civil war, a young boy was spared, only to be raised by one of the very soldiers who killed his family. Nearly 30 years after the tragedy a dedicated team uncovers the truth and brings justice to those responsible by finding the missing boy named Oscar.

all donations in support of Antigonish Breaking the Silence Maritimes-Guatemala Solidarity
Breaking the Silence (BTS) is a voluntary network of people in the Maritimes who began to organize in 1988 to support the efforts of Guatemalans struggling for political, social, and economic justice. We recognize that injustice is connected to structural inequities both within and between countries, and BTS is committed to supporting structural transformation both in Guatemala and Canada. Our work is guided by the understanding that we all deserve to be treated as equals, and that we need to build long-term relationships based on solidarity and mutuality. We respond to the needs and issues defined by our partners and other Guatemalans with whom we work, and we support them in taking charge of their own lives. Our relationships are built on friendship, sharing and dialogue as we work, learn, and grow together. As a community of people who share this commitment to solidarity, we undertake advocacy and lobbying; organize delegations; send interns; volunteers, and human rights accompaniers; promote fairly-traded coffee; and raise awareness within our communities through speaking tours by Guatemalan leaders.
