Show and Tell- A short film on the most Canadian of places, an outdoor skate rink

The ice rink I stumbled upon on Rice Lake, on the way up to the property
Last night, I watched a screening of Jeff Bird's documentary RINK (  performed with live music to accompany.  The documentary, filmed in Guelph, ON, captures the life and death of the most Canadian of places, an outdoor neighbourhood skating rink, made and cared for by a man named Udo.  Beautiful images and a wonderful depiction of a gathering place and how communities and people of all ages can come together, even on the coldest of days!  I had to share this short film!
