Tea, Conversation, and film commemorates the launch of Women's History month. Featured is the life of Dorothea Mitchell, Pioneer film maker and Lady Lumberjack with displays, refreshments, and film showing of The Fatal Flower, a film shot in 1930 by the Port Arthur Amateur Cinema Society and completed 75 years later by local film makers.

An event organized by the City of Thunder Bay's Heritage Advisory Committee and part of Culture Days 2015, the film will be introduced by Prof. Kelly Saxberg. The completion of this film was a true Department of History project as Michel S. Beaulieu, Ronald Harpelle, Peter Raffo, and Thorold Tronrud formed the core project team.
