Telling Our Stories

East Hants: This is us

In May 2017, through the Come Home East Hants Association, Kody worked with local historical groups to create East Hants: This is Us.

The historical documentary film celebrates the local history of the Municipality of East Hants. What was originally envisioned to be a 10-to-12-minute short video became a 50-minute documentary. narrated by Jim Nunn, the voice of CBC’s Land and Sea.

The film premiered in the Atlantic International Film Festival in September 2018. East Hants: This is Us has been widely celebrated in the local community, with plans underway to introduce the film into the local education curriculum.

Kody, serving as the Executive Director of the film, helped to bring together key volunteers in the community to make the project a widespread success.
