54 Hours/A Century of Horses

54 Hours marks the 100th anniversary of the Newfoundland sealing disaster. Among many other things, it involves a bloody (and controversial) industry; the exploitative working conditions of pre-industrial capitalism; a sealing crew caught on the ice during a once-in-a-generation storm; fateful bad luck and casual stupidity and callous disregard; acts of perseverance and sacrifice that beggar description; and the deaths of 78 men over the course of a 54-hour ordeal.

A Century of Horses: A story about devotion, trust and hope.

Rose Reid, an Ontario farmer, horse breeder and trainer, honours the life of four beloved horses during their final hour.
