The October 1 screening will be followed by a Q&A featuring director Aleisha Anderson.

After suffering a global, catastrophic event; the world is on the verge of extinction. Attempts to engineer humanity have dulled its sanctity, choking out new life. Resigned to hopelessness, Jacob attempts to end his suffering in the wasteland when a man finds him and takes him to Haven, the last settlement with a complicated past. Political unrest forces Jacob and the Haven Rebels to flee to the badlands where each of the survivors confront their mortality and purpose in this world.  

FATHER OF NATIONS is the first feature by Calgary filmmaker Aleisha Anderson, whose team transformed our Alberta locations of Southern Alberta, from Hilda and Brooks to Calgary and the badlands, into a post-apocalyptic universe, filmed with an entirely Albertan cast and crew.
