Antigonish RCMP and Paqtnkek First Nation RCMP Youth Group screen documentary – A Day Without Bullying

March 27, 2012, Antigonish, Nova Scotia…Antigonish RCMP, along with the Paqtnkek First Nation RCMP Youth Group invite the public to attend the premier screening of a documentary film, A Day Without Bullying.

For the past three months, approximately 24 Paqtnkek First Nations youth ranging from age nine to 11 worked with Cst. Jennifer Arnold, Antigonish RCMP, Mike Taylor, Native Drug and Alcohol Counseling Association and Cara Jones, documentary film maker, to create a film about the effects of bullying and what a day without bullying would be like.

Prior to filming the documentary, the youth took part in several workshops given by the documentary film maker on how to make a documentary. The youth then developed questions, wrote script, conducted interviews, and edited the film.

“This has been a fun and rewarding project,” says Cst. Jennifer Arnold, Antigonish RCMP. “I encourage everyone to come out and watch the many talented youth who worked diligently to create a film on such an important topic.”
