Music Music for Mycolgists 2013-12-01 14:00:00
Description

 

Join us for a concert with LaSaM's new ensemble Experimental Music Unit.

American composer John Cage was an avid mycologist. Cage often quipped that music and mushrooms have nothing to do with one another except for the fact that they appear next to each other in the dictionary. LaSaM's new ensemble Experimental Music Unit will put the veracity of this statement to the test.

Paul Walde, faculty member in UVic's Department of Visual Art and one of the artists featured in the exhibition Paradox, has produced large mushroom spore prints, which together compose a music score intended to be interpreted sonically when exhibited. Accordingly, the musicians, Tina Pearson (glass, flute, voice), George Tzanetakis (bass clarinet) and Walde (bass guitar and percussion), present a program of compositions by ensemble members that use mushroom hunting as a metaphor for uncovering those sounds of rare and raw beauty that exist just beyond perception. Since 2008, LaSaM has been noted for its adventurous sound and music events that inspire new ways of listening.

Film "Wadjda" 2013-12-01 15:20:00
Description

WADJDA

Director: Haifaa Al-Mansour   Saudi Arabia, 2012, 98 minutes; Arabic with subtitles; rated G

WINNER! MOST POPULAR FIRST FEATURE!  –Vancouver Film Festival

“A stunningly assured debut, a slyly subversive delight, and one of my favorite movies of the year!” --Slate

“Wadjda” is reportedly the first film to be made entirely within Saudi Arabia, and even more unexpectedly, it's a film by a first-time female filmmaker, Haifaa Al-Mansour, in a country where women cannot drive or vote (the latter is set to change in 2015), and men and women have to be segregated in public. Most remarkably of all, it's one of the best films of the year.

The title refers to its central character, played by 12-year-old actress Waad Mohammed. Wadjda is rebellious; she makes mixtapes of forbidden music, wears battered Converse to her school, and, a born hustler, sells home-made football bracelets to classmates, all incurring the wrath of the headmistress. More than anything else, she wants a bike to race her friend Abdullah (Abdullrahman Al Gohani), but the price seems out of reach.

Wadjda is one of the most memorable on-screen protagonists in some time. Essentially fearless, smarter than everyone else around her, and conning her way around Riyadh, it's the showcase of a terrific performance by Mohammed; the young actress owns every second she's on screen.

There's enormous warmth and comedy, and a fine observational eye of a world that's pretty alien to Western audiences, which makes it consistently fascinating. The film doesn't sugarcoat the situation in Saudi Arabia -- far from it -- but by the end, it makes clear in that there are real hopes for progress and change. That it manages to do so in such a technically adept way (much of the production team are German), with such clarity of storytelling, and is able to do with humor, emotion and smarts, is something close to a miracle.  –indieWire
