Blue Rodeo offers live debut screening of short film

It was just last week when Blue Rodeo entertained thousands of their faithful Winnipeg fans at the MTS Centre.

Now, the Canadian roots-rock legends are providing another musical gift to their fans — this time via the Internet; specifically, the Free Press website.

A live screening of a Blue Rodeo short film called It’s In Our Nature To Fly will be available here online on Jan. 31.

The film, directed by Juno Award-winner Christopher Mills, mashes up two Blue Rodeo songs, Mattawa and New Morning Sun, from their latest album In Our Nature.

"When asked to do a video mash up of two Blue Rodeo songs, (Mills) came back with an 18-minute opus -- part narrative, part abstract and all beautiful to look at," Blue Rodeo frontman Jim Cuddy said in a release.

"The video rewards multiple viewings. A truly wonderful piece of work."

The live screening begins at 11 a.m. Friday.  If you miss the live screening, a player with a YouTube video of the film will appear in its place as soon as its available.
