Film CALL OF THE FOREST 2017-04-30 15:00:00

CALL OF THE FOREST: The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees

Director: Jeffrey McKay; Canada, 2016, 82 min.


You can almost smell the forest in this beautiful new advocacy documentary featuring the Irish/Canadian author, conservationist, and botanist Diana Beresford-Kroeger.  –Pacific Cinematheque

The film follows Diana Beresford-Kroeger as she investigates our profound biological and spiritual connection to the woodlands and explores the most beautiful forests in the Northern Hemisphere.

From the sacred sugi and cedar forests of Japan to the great boreal forest of Canada, Beresford-Kroeger relates the amazing history and legacy of these ancient forests while also explaining the science of trees and the irreplaceable roles they play in protecting and feeding the planet.

This beautifully photographed film also profiles the Engelmann Spruce and the Great Western Red Cedar from the remaining ancient coastal rainforest of Vancouver Island.

We meet some of the world’s foremost experts in reforestation and are introduced to the activism of the Anishinaabe people of Pimachiowin Aki in Manitoba and Ontario. While calling for massive, global action, the film at heart is a story of triumph, proposing that each of us can combat climate change by planting trees in our own yards and neighbourhoods.

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-04-30 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.

Music MENDELSSOHN SYMPHONY NO. 3 2017-04-30 14:30:00

Greater Victoria Youth Orchestra

Yariv Aloni, Music Director & Conductor

MENDELSSOHN Symphony No. 3 (Scottish)

SMETANAM á Vlast: Vysehrad

FALLA The Three-Cornered Hat: Suite No. 2

The GVYO concludes its Season of Symphonies with music to delight the senses. Mendelssohn began his third symphony during a visit to Scotland, where he drew inspiration from Holyrood, a misty ruin where Mary, Queen of Scots had once been crowned queen. Smetana pays homage to his Czech homeland with the symphonic poem, Vysehrad (The High Castle), inspired by an historic and mysterious site above Prague. Falla’s Three Cornered Hat, written for a Diaghilev ballet, is a comedic blend of music and dance from Spain. Olé!
