Film A MAN CALLED OVE 2017-04-12 19:00:00
Description

A MAN CALLED OVE

Director: Hannes Holm; Sweden, 2016, 116 min; Swedish with subtitles; PG

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

ONE OF THE BIGGEST SWEDISH BOX OFFICE HITS OF ALL TIME!

A touching comic crowd-pleaser that may call for a tissue or two by the end, A Man Called Ove is an irresistible adaptation of Fredrik Backman’s bestselling novel. It’s a heartwarming tale about a stubborn, short-tempered man with steadfast beliefs, strict routines and the feeling that everyone around him is an idiot—and no reticence about telling them so. After new neighbours accidentally run over his mailbox, the cantankerous old git’s solitary world is shaken in ways he would never have imagined…

The action unfolds both in the present and in the past. Ultimately, it’s a friendship with the new neighbours——that gives Ove a new lease on life… Holm makes poignantly clear that being needed is an essential human desire, and life is so much sweeter when shared with others. –Variety

“A MORBIDLY FUNNY AND MOVING SUCCESS!” –RogerEbert.com

“IT’S HARD TO RESIST THE JOY OF THE FILM, the unbridled heart, and Ove’s tremendous, hilarious hatred for all the idiots of the world.” –The Playlist

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-04-12 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.

Description

Secondhand harms of drinking for postsecondary students: Prevalence, predictors, and consequences

with Dr. Kara Thompson

Dr. Thompson’s research program focuses on youth substance use and mental health. She approaches her work from a combination of applied, population health, and developmental-contextual perspectives. Her work focuses on 1) understanding how mental health and substance use patterns develop across adolescence and young adulthood, 2) investigating the predictors and consequences of mental health and substance use patterns and 3) informing the development and evaluation of evidence-based policies and interventions to promote health, social responsibility, and healthy substance use patterns among young people. Dr. Thompson’s current research efforts focus on investigating individual’s experiences of harm from other peoples drinking (second-hand effects) and alcohol advertising in digital media.
