Theatre PHOENIX: The Inspector MATINEE / SIGN LANGUAGE 2017-03-18 14:00:00
Description

The Inspector

March 9 –18, 2017

By Nikolay Gogol
Adapted & Directed by Linda Hardy

Word arrives in a little government town that an inspector is coming – incognito! Panic seizes the town’s officials: Will their little improprieties be exposed? Meanwhile, a lowly civil servant visiting from out of province is mistaken for the inspector. The officials outdo themselves to please him with gifts and he, in turn, grows bolder. This satirical farce spins out of control, as hypocrisy, corruption, and human greed escalate. Gogol’s comedy of errors, written in19th-century Russia, is no less relevant in our modern political landscape.

Sign Language Interpretation.

Appropriate for ages 13+

Film JULIETA 2017-03-18 15:00:00
Description

JULIETA

Director: Pedro Almodóvar; Spain, 2016, 99 min; Spanish with subtitles; 14A

Adapted from three short stories from Alice Munro’s “Runaway” collection, this mother-daughter head trip revisits familiar terrain from the filmmaker who gave us the ecstatically lurid melodramas “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown” and “All About My Mother.” But adapting his temperament to match Munro’s signature restraint, Almodóvar tones it down in “Julieta,” which owes as much to the sleek, moody thrillers of Alfred Hitchcock.

The film begins as the title character — a chic middle-aged classics professor living in Madrid — is preparing to move to Portugal with her dashing husband. When Julieta encounters a friend of her daughter Antía, from whom she has been estranged for several years, she makes the instinctive decision to stay put in the city. Almodóvar tells the ensuing story — much of it told in flashback — with well-calibrated suspense and captivating brio.

Partly filmed on the romantic seaside of Galicia, “Julieta” is a nonstop visual feast. It’s no surprise that it is marvelous to look at, but it possesses just as much substance as style. --Washington Post

Almodóvar's admiration for the Alice Munro short stories is not misplaced. Despite rough patches, Julieta morphs into a haunting and hypnotic tribute to both their talents.Rolling Stone

Both a film noir and a candy-colored confection, Pedro Almodóvar's Julieta is one of the most absorbing films he's made in years.Village Voice

MONSTER TRUCKS

Chris Wedge, USA/Canada, 2016, 105 min; PG - violence

A spry, spirited and delightful family film that has nothing to do with giant-wheeled vehicles piling on top of one another in indoor arenas. Instead, it’s an eco-fable, delivered with energy, winking mischief, unobtrusive effects and a skilled cast.

An oil company, personified by its chief executive (Rob Lowe), is drilling in North Dakota when it hits a water-table mother lode of biological activity. A geyser releases an entity that finds its way to the small-town high-school senior Tripp (Lucas Till). Working at a junkyard, Tripp bonds with the creature, which he names Creech. Creech, subsists on oil, and takes up residence in Tripp’s decrepit jalopy, sometimes impertinently seizing control. Antic effects-laden car chases in town and country ensue, leading to a tender climax. The director Chris Wedge (“Ice Age”) makes a nimble, largely live-action debut with this movie, whose heart, humor and gentle conscience keep it humming. –The New York Times

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-18 10:00
Description

We know Grafton Tyler Brown (1841-1918) was one of the first professional landscape artists to work in the Pacific Northwest. His few regional paintings that survive offer vivid windows into the world of 1880s Victoria and British Columbia. Yet, how did this African American artist succeed at a time when racial prejudice prevented most Blacks from entering any skilled profession? Guest curated by Dr. John Lutz (History, UVic) with Emerald Johnstone Bedell and Caroline Riedel. Created in partnership with UVIC Legacy Art Galleries and UVIC History Department. With conservation support from the Royal BC Museum. Image credit: Portrait of Artist Grafton Tyler Brown, Image A-08775 courtesy of the Royal BC Museum and Archives

Exhibit Ellen Neel: The First Woman Totem Pole Carver 2017-03-18 10:00
Description

This exhibition celebrates the career of Kwakiutl (Kwakwaka'wakw) carver Ellen Neel (1916-1966), the first woman carver of monumental totem poles. Further, it acknowledges Neel's influential role as a professional artist and her contribution towards the recognition of Northwest Coast Indian art as a contemporary art form.

"Our art continues to live, for not only is it part and parcel of us, but can be a powerful factor in combining the best part of Indian culture with the fabric of a truly Canadian art form."

Conference Indigenous Resurgence in an Age of Reconciliation 2017-03-18 08:00:00
Description

This symposium will bring together many prominent Indigenous scholars in the fields of Political Science, Law and Indigenous Governance to consider the long intellectual tradition of Indigenous resurgence within these fields while looking toward new directions in consideration of the challenges and possibilities produced in the era of reconciliation. Our aim in hosting this event is to cultivate an environment for productive discussion of a central concern facing Indigenous resurgence: our relationships with creation (land, water, animals, ancestors) and how these relationships have been impacted by reconciliation politics.

In conjunction with this symposium, the University of Victoria will publicly launch the Graduate Certificate in Indigenous Nationhood, which draws on faculty members and courses from the Political Science department, the Indigenous Governance program and the Faculty of Law to enable students to examine the intersections of law, politics, and governance with a focus on Indigenous nations and peoples.

We will launch the program publicly with a feast at the First Peoples House, inviting students, staff and faculty across UVIC as well as the local First Nations communities to join us in starting the program in a good way through the unveiling of a logo, singing and feasting.

This event is being held on the traditional territories of the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples.
