Description

SING

Christophe Lourdelet & Garth Jennings, USA, 2016, 108 min; rated G

A koala impresario stages a grand singing competition for the world's animals in order to save his elegant theater in this quirky animated musical. Voices include Jennifer Hudson, Matthew McConaughey, Scarlett Johansson.

“Kids will like the animals and the mayhem and won't mind the predictable plot. Adults should appreciate the entertaining musical pairings.”The Globe and Mail

“The film's message that collaboration can reap greater rewards than competition is appropriate for all ages.” –Chicago Reader

Lecture/Seminar City Talks: Adrift in the City: Anarchy, Order, and Spatial Imagination 2017-03-30 19:30:00
Description

Jeff Ferrell is Professor of Sociology at Texas Christian University, USA, and Visiting Professor of Criminology at the University of Kent, UK. His City Talks lecture will explore how cities in North America, Europe and elsewhere today find themselves awash in drifters of all sorts: homeless populations, immigrants and refugees, peripatetic part-time workers, gutter punks and nocturnal graffiti writers. In many of these cities, a particular irony is in operation: emerging consumerist economies and new forms of policing serve to cast and keep such groups adrift, while at the same time seeking to erase drifters from public space and public consciousness. Yet those adrift are not passive victims of these circumstances; individually and collectively, they engage in alternative, often anarchic spatial practices and develop subversive understandings of urban life. The contested place of drifters in the urban environment in this way reflects a larger conflict over the meaning of city life itself, and a fundamental battle over anarchy, order, and spatial imagination.

Film LAND OF MINE 2017-03-30 19:00:00
Description

LAND OF MINE

Director: Martin Zandvliet; Denmark/Germany, 2016, 101 min; Danish/German with subtitles; 14A

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE: BEST FOREIGN FILM!

It might seem hard to find a World War II story that hasn’t been told, but Danish director Martin Zandvliet has come up with a fresh and compelling approach. Based on a true but not well-known part of history, the film works as a moving antiwar essay and as a gripping thriller. After the official end of the war in May 1945, German POWs in Denmark were put to work on a deadly task — defusing more than 2 million German land mines along the country’s west coast. Danish Sergeant Rasmussen (Roland Moller) is assigned to oversee the German prisoners. Most of them are teenage boys conscripted by Hitler in the last days of the war, and they are hopelessly ill equipped to carry out their dangerous job. –Hollywood Reporter

“A CLASSIC WIDE-SCREEN WORLD WAR II EPIC BUT WITH A NUMBER OF UNSETTLING TWISTS.” –Los Angeles Times

“YOU’LL FIND YOURSELF RIVETED TO THE PROCEEDINGS.” –Hitfix

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-03-30 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.

Lecture/Seminar Act of Faith: A New Play about Disability and Belief 2017-03-30 16:30:00
Description

Presentation by Janet Munsil, CSRS Artist in Residence
After more than a decade in a wheelchair, a young woman with a spinal cord injury has a dream of healing, in which she stands and walks. Munsil’s latest play examines how the woman’s rapid and unexpected recovery, attributed to her faith, could impact family, friends, healthcare providers, and the disability community. Written for a future season at Vancouver’s Realwheels Theatre, Act of Faith explores certainty, identity, stigma, and the embodiment of disability and faith. This lecture will incorporate readings of scenes from the play.

Other Embrace Aging - focus groups 2017-03-30 16:00:00
Description

The vision for a “precision health” strategy is based on the rapid translation of research discoveries to improve patient care and health outcomes. To effectively tackle the complexities of chronic conditions and cognitive disorders and to make advances in their prevention and treatment, researchers are focusing on measuring an individual’s health repeatedly over time to obtain more accurate assessments of changes in health and wellness. However, this research is very demanding on participants. We are interested in discussing major research questions, preferred modes of responding, and design factors associated with recruitment and retention including frequency of contact, length of survey, and preference for feedback. Please join one of our focus groups, meet some of our key researchers, and help us define the next generation of research!
