"'I grew up in this town at the edge of an island, on the fringe of a continent, in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, besieged by crisis and disaster and plagued by a punishing climate. Is it any wonder we love it so?" This is a celebration of a town like no other: St. John's, Newfoundland. Join director Rosemary House and some of Newfoundland's most famous artists and writers as they take you on a tour of the city's past and present from their own perspectives--which are as unique as the town itself. Featuring Mary Walsh ("This Hour Has 22 Minutes"), Andy Jones ("Codco"), musician Anita Best, actor Bryan Hennessey and writers Des Walsh and Ed Riche! The Tenth Frontier is a 12-part series highlighting 50 years of NFB films from and about Newfoundland and Labrador. From touching personal stories, to portraits of public figures, to windows on ways of life now past, the series is a treasure of historical films.
