Community Event: The Story of Canairelief

The Princess Cinemas in Waterloo will be premiering a documentary produced and directed by a local Nigerian artist and academic.

OPERATION LIGHTS OUT chronicles a forgotten story in Canadian history and the role played by unacknowledged Canadians in saving over one million lives during the Nigerian Civil War often referred to as the “Biafran War.”

This event will feature the cinema premiere of the documentary “Operation Lights Out: The Story of Canairelief” followed by a conversation and Q&A with the film’s Director. The cinematic premiere of the film at Princess Cinemas in Waterloo with 2 dates as follows:

Sunday, October 1, 2023:  2:00 pm
Wednesday, October 4, 2023:  7:00 pm

There is some violence depicted and many references to war and violence, so this film would be be appropriate for older viewers – i.e. secondary school students, and parents.
