Film VIOLENT 2017-04-19 19:00:00
Description

An overlooked gem for Canadian Film Day!

VIOLENT

Director: Andrew Huculiak; Canada/Norway, 2014, 102 min, PG

This overlooked gem, the feature debut of Andrew Huculiak, drummer for Vancouver rockers We Are the City, won the Best B.C. Film and Best Canadian Film prizes at VIFF, earned eight of B.C.’s Leo Awards and was named to Canada’s Top Ten 2014. Made by Huculiak and his bandmates in Norway — and in Norwegian — this beautiful, mysterious work concerns Dagny (Dagny Backer Johnsen), a young woman who moves to the city to escape her small-town life. As she copes with a hinted-at catastrophe, Dagny recalls the five people in her life who have loved her the most. –The Cinematheque

“SPECTACULARLY CONFIDENT STORYTELLING…ONE OF THE BEST B.C. FEATURE DEBUTS EVER!” --Ken Eisner, Georgia Straight

“NOTHING SHORT OF A MUST-SEE!”–Katherine Monk, Ex-Press

Lecture/Seminar Cannabis Distribution and Public Health Webinar 2017-04-19 10:00:00
Description

The commercialization and promotion of cannabis use is a key concern within the public health community as Canada moves toward legalization. The report of the Task Force on Cannabis Legalization and Regulation proposed several initiatives to address this concern. INSPQ has also recently published a report presenting additional non-profit models for distribution. The webinar will provide an opportunity for public health partners in Canada to discuss and learn more about public health-oriented regulatory options within a legalized approach to non-therapeutic cannabis.

Hosted by: The Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse (CCSA) in collaboration with CPHA.

Alliance Française de Victoria presents Emporte Moi

Summary:

Hanna (Vanasse) is an unhappy tomboyish teenager living in 1960s Montreal. Her erratic father and perpetually sick mother aren’t much help as she tries to navigate the tricky terrain of puberty. Feeling isolated and alone, Hannah seeks to escape in cinema, becoming fixated on the beautiful and freespirited Anna Karina in Jean-Luc Godard’s Vivre sa vie (My Life to Live).

As her home life deteriorates, the confused Hannah attempts to emulate her movie idol, making some poor and potentially dangerous decisions before finding a healthy way to express herself and cope with her world.

A touching coming-of-age story that won four Jutras for director Léa Pool.

Cast:Monique Mercure, Miki Manojlovic, Pascale Bussières, Karine Vanasse

 

Rating: NR

Film language: French

This film is subtitled in: English

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-04-19 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 The Rohingya Crisis and Beyond 2017-04-19 15:00:00
Description

Ethnic Conflict and Peace-Building in Myanmar: The rohingya Crisis and Beyond

Recent reports from Rakhine state in western Myanmar have triggered a debate about whether the government—or more specifically the military—is pursuing a strategy of genocide. Myanmar’s de facto leader, Aung San Su Kyi, denies these charges, claiming that the government is carrying out a counterinsurgency operation. The situation of the Rohingya in Rakhine state raises difficult questions about the relationship between the NLD-led government and the military, and the prospects of a broader peace deal that would encompass minorities in Myanmar’s north and northeast. This roundtable brings together a group of experts to shed light on these developments by considering the history of the ethnic conflict in Myanmar; the broader social and political context; legal issues around citizenship, dispossession, and statelessness; and the wider regional and international context.

Film La journee du cinema canadien 2017-04-19 14:00:00
Description

L’Université de Victoria présente: La Journée du cinéma canadien 150

Ce programme inclus 360 degrés et Ta parole est en jeu : Les franco-nunavois suivis de Reel Injun (Hollywood et les indiens).

Hollywood et les indiens est un documentaire instructif sur la façon dont les peuples des Premières Nations ont été dépeints au cinéma, depuis l’ère du muet jusqu’à nos jours. Débordant d’extraits de centaines de films, et rempli d’entrevues avec des acteurs, des réalisateurs et des scénaristes célèbres, autochtones ou non, Hollywood et les indiens jette un regard divertissant et judicieux sur la manière dont le puissant média du cinéma reflète et influence la culture.

Le réalisateur Neil Diamond entraîne le public dans un voyage dans le temps pour explorer l’histoire des « Indiens d’Hollywood ». Il offre une analyse rafraîchissante, honnête et personnelle, montrant comment ces images cinématographiques ont façonné et influencé la compréhension de la culture et de l’histoire des peuples autochtones.

Abstract

This research project explores ways in which place-based Indigenous perspectives can inform national park ‘visitor experience’ planning, management, and information delivery. Engaged in collaborative processes with Tseshaht First Nation, this project explores knowledge of Tseshaht-identified places of cultural significance in Tseshaht traditional territory, discussed in the context of creating a web-based digital map. In attempting to explore Nuu-chah-nulth-informed ways in which to more widely share cultural history and knowledge in Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, I learned of the many dynamics that are revealed when the depth of Nuu-chah-nulth connections to place are made visible. This research project examines knowledge, power, and place in the context of Indigenous self-representation. Informed by Indigenous ways of knowing and Indigenous principles of knowledge-sharing, this thesis is an ethnography of knowledge-sharing in modern contexts fraught with issues of state power, commodification, and colonialism.
