Exhibit The Arts of World War I 2015-01-25 All Day
Description

Curated by Marcus Milwright (Department of Art History and Visual Studies)

Legacy Maltwood (at the Mearns Centre – McPherson Library)

For hours & location click here

This exhibition marks the centenary of the start of of the "Great War" with a cross cultural focus on the visual and material culture of World War I. The exhibition includes books, prints, and personal objects drawn from the Legacy Art Galleries, the UVic Libraries (Special Collections and Archives), and private collections in Victoria. These objects present visual manifestations of the war in the theatres of conflict in Europe and the Middle East as well as the production and consumption of art and literature in Canada between 1914 and 1918. Visitors will also see unique examples of European and Middle Eastern "trench art", a term which refers to objects made by soldiers in times of conflict as well as those made of spent artillery shells and other military equipment by civilian artisans after the cessation of hostilities. Another central part of the exhibit is the so-called "J.M. Diary." The curator is inviting the public to solve the mystery of who illustrated this fascinating first-hand visual account.

Film "Force MAJEURE' 2015-01-25 15:30:00
Description

FORCE MAJEURE

Director: Ruben Östlund

Sweden, 2014, 120 min; Swedish with subtitles

WINNER! UN CERTAIN REGARD JURY PRIZE --Cannes Film Festival

“VISUALLY STUNNING!” –Variety

“BRACING AND INTELLIGENT.” –HitFix

“A BRUTALLY SMART AND ORIGINAL FILM.” –The Playlist

Ruben Östlund’s riveting drama features a desperate man whose world crumbles around him. After an avalanche at a ski resort in the Alps, a family’s escape is overshadowed by husband/father Tomas’ cowardice in the clutch. It seems that running for his (own) life without a second thought for his family is a slight his wife Ebba just can’t shake.

Tomas, or course, denies it ever happened. Unfortunately, he can’t persuade his wife to love him or his two kids to trust him. Over the next few days, the ski holiday comes to resemble a purgatory of humiliation, dejection and rejection for the red-faced patriarch.

Perhaps the most surprising thing about Force Majeure is how funny it is. Admittedly the humour is rather uncomfortable. (The avalanche, incidentally, is an impressive cameo from Whistler-Blackcomb’s snowpack.) Östlund has fashioned what amounts to a comedy of manners—or perhaps quite the opposite, as there’s nothing like a brush with mortality to make good manners look irrelevant. –Vancouver International Film Festival
