When a Fokker F7 seaplane landed in Trepassey harbour on June 7, 1928, it set the town buzzing. One of the crew of three was a woman! She was tall, shorted haired, wore a leather jacket and -- much to the outrage of the local nuns-- was dressed in pants. Join filmmaker, Lorne Warr at the screening of his film, A Woman in Pants, the story of how Amelia Earhart, an unknown Boston social worker became an international superstar. It's also the story of how a small Newfoundland outport became the launching point of a journey and a career that changed Western culture.
