DocuTalk: Silicon Island

Join us as we watch a short documentary and then discuss it! We will be watching documentaries that touch on social, cultural, political, and global issues. Then, we’ll have an open discussion and exchange of ideas over the film’s topic.


Silicon Island

Saturday, January 15 | 2:00pm-3:30pm

First it was cod. Then it was oil.
But despite those economic setbacks — which still cast a shadow over Newfoundland and Labrador's financial future — one director has turned his camera toward a burgeoning industry gaining a foothold across the province.
This documentary explores the rapid expansion of the Atlantic province's tech sector — growth that surprised even Christopher Richardson, the man at the helm of Silicon Island.


This meeting will be held on Zoom. You can watch the film with the group at 2:00pm, or watch on your own and join us 5-10 minutes before 3:00pm for a great discussion!

What you’ll need to attend: a computer with microphone (or headphones) and webcam, or your smartphone/tablet.

Registration required. Register online or call 604-987-4471, ext. 8175. Zoom link will be sent to those registered in advance of the meeting date.
