Film SELMA 2015-03-29 15:25:00
Description

SELMA

Director: Ava DuVernay   USA, 2014, 129 min; PG

NOMINATED FOR 2 ACADEMY AWARDS:  BEST PICTURE and BEST SONG

Failure to indict white police in the killing of unarmed black men has nothing and everything to do with Selma, Ava DuVernay's provocative probe into Martin Luther King Jr.'s landmark 1965 voting-rights march. The sad fact is that racial injustice is timelier than ever.

DuVernay, working from a terrific, tightly focused script, blows the dust off history to find its beating heart. Look at the situation facing King, played magnificently by British actor David Oyelowo: Black voters in the South are being intimidated, beaten and disenfranchised. In the White House, Lyndon Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) hems and haws. King had to take action.

Selma isn't a biopic – it celebrates community action – but in seeing King through the prism of one crucial event, the film offers a rousing portrait of a born preacher not without sin. Oyelowo's stirring, soulful performance deserves superlatives. –Rolling Stone

Film INTO THE WOODS 2015-03-29 13:00:00
Description

INTO THE WOODS

Director: Rob Marshall   USA, 2014, 125 min; rated PG – violence 

A splendid Disney screen adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim-James Lapine musical. This witty and touching mash-up of several Grimm fairy tales reimagines Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy), Jack (of “Jack and the Beanstalk,” Daniel Huttlestone) and other fairy tale figures as complex, self-aware human beings in transition. Mr. Lapine’s screenplay follows them to “happily ever after,” then leaps ahead into territory that turns out to be the scary real world. Here, children weaned on fairy tales must finally abandon magical thinking. --The New York Times

Description

ZERO MOTIVATION

Director: Talya Lavie;  Israel, 2014, 97 min; Hebrew with subtitles; PG

“WILDLY FUNNY!” –Los Angeles Times

Satirical comedies set in the military aren’t aplenty in cinema. Even more uncommon, is an Israeli military movie told from a female point of view as written and directed by a female filmmaker. This is a unique, sharply observed and hilarious look at the ridiculousness of subordination and the utter boredom of carrying out meaningless orders. It centers on the power struggles of three females stationed in a remote Israeli desert with different agendas and almost nothing to do. “Zero Motivation” is the discovery of an exciting new original voice in cinema, who happens to be really funny, intelligent and female. We can’t wait for more. –The Playlist

Lecture/Seminar Talking Back to The(ir) Archive: Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes 2015-04-02 12:30:00
Description

During each of their lifetimes, the poets Sylvia Plath (1932-1963) and Ted Hughes (1930-1998) amassed a significant archive. Collected and constructed in the years both before and after their marriage (1956-1962), their archives are noisy bodies of information that encompass multiple drafts, letters, financial documentation, photographs and ephemera. But how do they correspond to each other? And how do they talk to the larger body of the archive itself? Using examples from the University of Victoria Libraries Special Collections, and discussing her own research with both Plath and Hughes’ archives, librarian and Plath scholar Christine Walde will discuss some of the features and unique characteristics of these important literary archives.

Lecture/Seminar CSRS Public Lecture Series - The Inner Life of a Camera: The Camera Obscura and Contemplative Practice in a more than Human World 2015-04-02 16:30:00
Description

In this talk Trudi Lynn Smith will ask, “what is recoverable in photography?” The work Portable Camera Obscura uses proto-photographic practice to bring people together to consider the ways we constitute and experience photography. Smith considers how embodying indeterminacy might help provide the possibility for new appearances such as the uncanny, the spectral, and transitions that are not picked up in the common use of cameras. Rather than get caught in the association between photography and truth, stability, and arrival, how might photography cultivate an affinity for events on the move, as embodied, and as part of more than human lifeworlds? She will elaborate on this thinking by drawing on aspects of Buddhism that emerge from recent literature on the history of art (e.g. Kay Larson on John Cage) and aspects of Buddhist practice itself (e.g. Dharma art).

Dr. Trudi Lynn Smith is an interdisciplinary artist, researcher and writer whose work focuses on practices of photography. She recently published The Anthropology of Historical Photography in a Protected Area: Life and death in Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta (Anthropologica 56:1); co-curated Ethnographic Terminalia: Archives and Ephemera (Hierarchy Gallery, Washington DC); and exhibited work at The North Third Street (Lafayette College PA), Arts Incubator Washington Park (Chicago), Open Space Gallery (Victoria), and The Southern Alberta Art Gallery (Lethbridge).

Come and stop by the UVic Centre for Youth and Society displays at IdeaFest 2015 to see creative and even playful ways of gathering the perspectives of young people on a wide array of research topics.

Description

INHERENT VICE

Director: Paul Thomas Anderson   USA, 2014, 149 min; 14A

“What’s up, Doc?” That’s just one of a few running gags that keep afloat this cockamamie, kaleidoscopic, languidly compelling whodunit. The Doc in question is a private eye living in the seedy environs of Gordita Beach, Calif., in 1970. Like his animated counterpart, this Doc (played in a thoughtfully spaced-out turn by Joaquin Phoenix) gets out of his share of scrapes in a tale whose characters, structure and tone often feel as if they were crafted by Raymond Chandler while under contract at Looney Tunes. Based on the 2009 novel by Thomas Pynchon. –Washington Post

“So funny, so strange, so wonderfully charmingly deranged.” --HitFix

FROM THE DIRECTOR OF ‘MAGNOLIA,’ ‘PUNCH DRUNK LOVE,’ ‘THERE WILL BE BLOOD,’ ‘THE MASTER.’
