Canisius Presents “Firebird”


The LGBTQIA+ Speakers Series at Canisius College presents a conversation with the director and lead actor of the film “Firebird” on Monday, February 6 at 12:00 noon.  The presentation takes place in the Andrew L. Bouwhuis Library Learning Center, and will also be available in a webinar format.

Based on the true story of a clandestine love affair between a fighter pilot and an enlisted man, “Firebird” tells their romantic story with the backdrop of Soviet Occupied Estonia.

The film has played at Pride festivals throughout Europe.  Putin doesn’t want you to see it.  What more reason to watch the film than an illicit love affair, the Cold War, beautiful scenery and censorship?  Then join us for a conversation with Tom Prior the lead actor, and Peeter Rebane the director.

The film can be screening on streaming services and video on demand.
