The NFB Film Club and Medicine Hat Public Library are showing the documentary Forbidden Love on Sunday, Nov. 23 at 2 p.m. in the Medicine Hat Public Library theatre. Admission is free.


Compelling, often hilarious and always rebellious, nine women paint a portrait of lesbian sexuality against a backdrop of tabloid headlines, book covers and dramatizations from pulp novels.
This documentary is not suitable for children.
The Just Docs Film Club and the Library are then showing the documentary Fed Up.
The film is being screened on Monday Nov. 24 at 7 p.m. in the Medicine Hat Public Library theatre. Admission is free.
Thirty years ago the U.S. Government issued its first ever dietary guidelines and with it one of the greatest health epidemics of our time ensued. In her documentary feature debut, producer and narrator Katie Couric explores why— despite media attention and government policies to combat childhood obesity — generations of children will now live shorter lives than their parents.
Following a group of children for more than two years, Fed Up documents their uphill battles to follow the conventional wisdom of ‘diet and exercise’ in order to live healthier, fuller lives. In truth, far more of us are sick from what we are eating than anyone has ever realized, including those of us who look thin and trim on the outside.
