Six Primrose Documentary (2018)

Filmed on location in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Six Primrose takes us into a community where strengths are highlighted, people are welcomed, and food is included in every engagement. Labels of single mother, new immigrant, disabled, addict, poor are left at the door. This is a community where lives are celebrated and opportunities are explored. By tracing the lives of community members, Six Primrose reveals the Community Food Centre's deep effect on the entire neighbourhood.
