Edge of EastPEI’s Jackie Torrens has launched a new documentary, Edge of East, which was recently named one of the top ten films to watch at the Atlantic Film Festival 2014 by The Coast Weekly.

Newly founded Halifax based production company, Peep Media Inc, screened Edge of East, their first documentary, at both the Atlantic Film Festival in Halifax and at the Island Media Arts Festival (IMAF) in Charlottetown.

Jackie Torrens propels herself off the edge of the east coast by investigating three rich and surprising subcultures that have unique ties to the Maritime identity; the UFO believers of Shag Harbour, the Steampunks of Halifax and the Yodelers of King’s County. What can these offbeat subcultures tell us about the east coast identity that we haven’t heard before? Our curious host Jackie Torrens goes on a road trip to answer this question. She also discovers the unexpected ties these three seemingly unconnected groups share. The Yodelers of King’s County use a secret musical past to find the beauty in the “flaw.” The UFO’ers of Shag Harbour say the village hangs its hat on a mystery. The Steampunks of Halifax ask “What if the future happened in the past?”

Writer and actor Jackie Torrens (Made in Canada, Trailer Park Boys) is currently starring in Thom Fitzgerald’s mini-series Sex and Violence, with Olympia Dukakis. She is also a documentary-maker. The Collector ran nationally on CBC and was about a junk junkie who discovered a priceless piece of art in a box discards. Camp Mini Ha Ha, won a CBC Award of Excellence.

Peep Media Inc. is an innovative production company spearheaded by producer Jessica Brown, and writer/director/actor Jackie Torrens, focused on presenting intelligent television and entertainment in various genres. Their mission is to produce both factual and dramatic content for Canadian and International audiences.
