Film LION 2017-04-10 19:00:00


Director: Garth Davis; Australia, 2016, 119 min; rated G


A moving performance from Dev Patel is the resilient soul of this enthralling feature debut from Garth Davis that tells the true story of Saroo Brierley and his tenacious quest to find the family from whom he was separated 25 years earlier. Tempering its sentimentality with authentic feeling, the film is a stirring contemplation of roots, identity and home. Sunny Pawar, who plays Saroo as a 5-year-old in the opening chapter, and Nicole Kidman, as Saroo's adoptive mother, give beautiful performances. –The Hollywood Reporter

“Lion is one from the heart.”Rolling Stone

“A beautifully told, uplifting story of courage and determination.” –Chicago Sun-Times

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-04-10 10:00

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.
