NIGHT MOVES

Director: Kelly Reichardt   USA, 2013, 112 minutes

Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, Peter Sarsgaard

“A QUIETLY GRIPPING GEM.” –Chicago Sun-Times

“A SLOW-BURNING SUSPENSE THRILLER, WITH AN ENDING YOU’LL ARGUE ABOUT ALL NIGHT.” –Slate.com

“IT’S THE ZEITGEIST MOVIE OF THE MOMENT.” –Christian Science Monitor

Three conspirators (Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, and Peter Sarsgaard) living in a valley in southern Oregon decide to blow up a local dam as a protest against the use of water for such luxuries as golf courses and the disruption of salmon life for the production of electricity. What happens at the dam, filmed at night, with only shimmering light, is the most nerve-racking sequence in recent movies. Oregon’s natural magnificence (photographed with sombre beauty by Chris Blauvelt) adds to our ambivalence toward the three—they are both protectors and violators of the environment, both righteous and criminal. –The New Yorker

Other That Chemistry Show! 2014-08-20 19:00:00
Description

UVIC CHEMISTRY SHOW

Rowan is a small lad with a serious and rare x-linked genetic disorder called Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome. Basically, it is a bleeding disorder that is accompanied by a low immune system.

There is no "cure" but what can help is a bone marrow transplant.  Rowan will be in and out of Vancouver Children's Hospital for about 3 months, which means a lot of extra expenses, and both of his parents will have to take time off of work. The money raised will help Rowan's family cover any extra bills, medical expenses that are not covered, accommodation and living expenses, and travel to and from Vancouver. Anything above and beyond what they need will be donated to others dealing with the same condition, the WAS foundation, and the hospital.

The Chemistry Students Society and friends are excited to help out with their popular “That Chemistry Show!”  An all ages show that will educate, entertain, and just plain thrill.  This event follows a long tradition of science shows started by Dr. Reg Mitchell in the 1970's.  Reg has retired and so the Dr. Zonk name, but we try to keep the spirit of what Dr. Zonk was alive.  So bring the whole family for another generation can experience the magic of Chemistry!
