Film "GLORIA" 2014-04-16 19:00:00
Description

GLORIA

Director: Sebastián Lelio  
Chile, 2013, 110 min; Spanish with subtitles; 14A

“Are you always this happy?” Rodolfo asks Gloria, shortly after catching her eye. They are at a nightclub where middle-aged residents of Santiago, Chile, dance and flirt, and where Gloria, in her 50s and long divorced, occasionally goes to attract the attention of a silver-haired Romeo. No, she says, sometimes in the mornings she is sad, and in the afternoons, too.

The great accomplishment of “Gloria,” the Chilean writer-director Sebastián Lelio’s astute, unpretentious and thrillingly humane new film, is that it acknowledges both sides of its heroine’s temperament without judgment or sentimentality. Gloria, played with dignity and gusto by Paulina García, is too complicated for such treatment.

Her life is a familiar jumble of pleasures and frustrations, her personality a weave of moods, foibles and admirable traits. She sometimes drinks too much, and hovers needily around her two grown children. She endures a dull office job. She is immune to self-pity and not averse to emotional risk.

One of the delights of “Gloria” is that its richly detailed realism is fuel for thought: about Chile, about men and women, about the cycles of family life. But Mr. Lelio is interested, above all, in showing Gloria exactly as she is, which is beautiful.

--The New York Times

One of the most enjoyable movies to come along in a while.” --Los Angeles Times

“It elevates your mood to such a point that you wish you could hug the screen out of sheer joy and recognition!”  –RogerEbert.com

Lecture/Seminar Masterminds: Contributions of Mathematical Modelling to Controlling Infectious Diseases 2014-04-16 19:00:00
Description

Ever wonder how public health officials determine their response to infectious diseases? During her career at UVic Dr. Pauline van den Driessche has applied new mathematical methods to study the dynamics of epidemics. In her presentation she’ll explain how mathematical models are used to predict and monitor the spread of infectious diseases such as influenza, measles and malaria, and to estimate the percentage of the population requiring vaccination.

Van den Driessche is an internationally recognized mathematician for her work in mathematical biology and linear algebra. Her major impact in mathematical biology is the application of new mathematical methods to study the dynamics of epidemics. She has developed tools to analyze disease outcomes and the impact of vaccination methods on influenza, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and West Nile Virus.

The Masterminds lecture series highlights the continuing contributions of the University of Victoria's retirees. The series is co-hosted by the UVic Retirees Association and the Centre on Aging, with support of the University of Victoria.
