Brotherhood, a survival drama based on a true story from the 1920s, will screen in Yellowknife this weekend as the Capitol Theater seeks to show more Canadian films.

Directed by Richard Bell, fraternity follows a group of boys at camp in Kawartha Lakes, Ontario in the summer of 1926 – and the aftermath when a freak storm capsizes their canoe.

The 2019 film, which stars Roswell’s Brendan Fehr, follows two adult leaders – one incapacitated after World War I and the other haunted by the loss of his son to the Spanish flu – as they that they try to save the boys.

“A drama about confronting a natural adversary in tandem with our community feels timely, after all we’ve been through,” Bell said in a press release announcing the film’s arrival.
