Film SELMA 2015-03-30 17:00:00
Description

SELMA

Director: Ava DuVernay   USA, 2014, 129 min; PG

NOMINATED FOR 2 ACADEMY AWARDS:  BEST PICTURE and BEST SONG

Failure to indict white police in the killing of unarmed black men has nothing and everything to do with Selma, Ava DuVernay's provocative probe into Martin Luther King Jr.'s landmark 1965 voting-rights march. The sad fact is that racial injustice is timelier than ever.

DuVernay, working from a terrific, tightly focused script, blows the dust off history to find its beating heart. Look at the situation facing King, played magnificently by British actor David Oyelowo: Black voters in the South are being intimidated, beaten and disenfranchised. In the White House, Lyndon Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) hems and haws. King had to take action.

Selma isn't a biopic – it celebrates community action – but in seeing King through the prism of one crucial event, the film offers a rousing portrait of a born preacher not without sin. Oyelowo's stirring, soulful performance deserves superlatives. –Rolling Stone

“YES, WE NEED THIS MOVIE NOW.” –New York Magazine

“ONE OF THE BEST AMERICAN FILMS OF THE YEAR – AND INDEED PERHAPS THE BEST.” –The Wrap

Lecture/Seminar Grammar Workshop 2015-03-30 11:00
Description

Wish you were a grammar expert? It's never too late! Whether English is an additional language for you, or you're just hoping to improve your skills, the Grammar workshops are a great way to learn something new about the English language and improve your structure and usage through instruction and practice.
 
Undergraduate and graduate students of every English proficiency level and background are welcome. Bring your questions about grammatical terminology, structure, syntax, usage, and pretty much anything else that’s English-language related. Come for the first 30-40 minutes of instruction and stay as long as you like to work on your assignments and ask questions, or just come for the question/drop-in period from around 1:45 until 3:00 and have any grammar-related questions answered by an expert.
 
Topics change weekly. Check the Centre for Academic Communication's website (https://ltc.uvic.ca/servicesprograms/twc.php) or click on the link below for more information and the topic schedule.
