Top of page

One of the three films in the Northern Sights Yukon film competition, Our Town Faro is about a town and a man. Faro was supposed to die. The mine closed down and people began to drift away. From a population of over 2,000 it dwindled to 70. Murray Hampton, a man who had been there from the beginning, was determined to see the town survive. Today its population is 300 and growing.
