Lecture/Seminar Lansdowne Lecture "Chernobyl and the Contemporary Nuclear Imagination" 2017-03-01 18:00:00
Description

Dr. Tamara Hundorova (Institute of Literature, the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine; Ukrainische Freie Universitat)

"Chernobyl" today is not only an actual event, but also a symbolic one. As such, it is similar to other traumatic events in twentieth century history - the Holocaust, Auschwitz, and Hiroshima. After Chernobyl the image of the world has changed, and the history of the new era of nuclear culture has begun. How one can talk about the trauma of Chernobyl? Who are the witnesses of Chernobyl? How the nuclear imagination is connected with the experience of Chernobyl?

With conservation support from the Royal BC Museum.

Film I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO 2017-03-01 19:00:00
Description

I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO

Director: Raoul Peck, France/USA, 2016, 95 minutes

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE: BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE!

In one of the most courageous and assertive documentaries of the year, Raoul Peck picks up on an unfinished manuscript by James Baldwin to examine the issue of race in America through the (too-short) lives of Martin Luther King, Medgar Evers, and Malcolm X. Connecting these martyrs of the Civil Rights movement with Black Lives Matter, Peck has produced a searing work that cuts to the very heart of American identity. –Vancouver International Film Festival

“FIVE STARS!  One of the best movies about the civil rights era ever made.”The Guardian

“A MESMERIZING CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE.” --Los Angeles Times

“THE RARE MOVIE THAT MIGHT BE CALLED A SPIRITUAL DOCUMENTARY.” --Variety
