Everyday in Halifax, a neutered but ceremonial blast fires from a canon. The Noon Gun sends a rattle through the old wooden homes of the North End.
Within one of these homes, an elderly woman dotes over her graffiti writer grandson. An interracial couple walk tensely down a side street. A recovering alcoholic cop lectures his street-wizened young
partner as they walk the beat.
On one day in particular, the Noon Gun blast ties these groups into a sequence of events. As these events unfold, each group’s perspective grows, obscuring reality and ultimately effecting each other’s lives.
Noon Gun is a story ripped from writer/ director Caley MacLennan’s heart. Focused on storytelling and performance, the style is reminiscent of Dogme 95 films.
