Title

New Film "An Author of These Words"

Description

A short article describing a film being released by the Atlantic Region of the National Film Board about the author Harold Horwood. Horwood was best known for his 1966 novel "Tomorrow Will Be Sunday" which is about a man's coming out and coming of age in Newfoundland. The director of the film, William McGillivray said that parts of the film had been cut down due to "regional interest" and stated that it was suggested by an NFB official that the film be subtitled due to a misunderstanding of "dialect."

The Body Politic was a queer, activist-based Canadian monthly newsletter that was published from 1971 to 1987. It is one of the most significant queer publications in Canadian history, and played a significant role in amplifying the Gay Liberation Movement and provided a crucial space for queer voices to be heard.
