Film KONELINE: our land beautiful 2016-12-04 15:00:00
Description

KONELĪNE: our land beautiful

Director: Nettie Wild, Canada, 2016, 96 minutes; PG

WINNER! BEST CANADIAN DOCUMENTARY! –Hot Docs 2016

Like last year’s doc ‘Haida Gwaii,’ Nettie Wild’s extraordinary documentary reveals the stunning landscape to the north, and charts the tension between a still relatively pristine beauty and the scars of economic development. First and foremost a rhapsodic visual response to a place and the people in it, KONELĪNE engages the senses with its ravishing aerial views and staggering vistas (as well as its superb sound design).… The film is a meditation on different cultures, different conceptions of time and value, and a glimpse of the something that will surely outlast us all. –Vancouver International Film Festival

”TRANSCENDENT, BREATHTAKING SPECTACLE!” --Maclean’s

“A FEAST FOR THE EYES….A tone poem to a beautiful land and the amazing characters who live in it. I urge you to see it.” - POV

“Award-winning director Nettie Wild crafts a breathtaking love letter—in stunning CinemaScope and surround sound—that captures the majestic beauty of the land and the unique people who live on it." --Hot Docs 2016

Exhibit the absence of the origin of its likeness 2016-12-04 All Day
Description

Has this photograph been digitally altered? Did the scene it show actually occur? Since the photograph’s invention, people have been enamored by the image’s resemblance to its subject. But changes in the field of photography like digital imaging and editing have brought this into question. In the absence of the origin of its likeness, artists Laura Dutton and Arnold Koroshegyi examine these issues, using both analogue and digital technologies, to destabilize traditional readings and open up new avenues for making and looking at photographs. 
 
the absence of the origin of its likeness opens Friday, November 4 at 7:30 p.m. at Open Space. The exhibition runs until Saturday, December 10. A panel discussion will be held on Saturday, November 5 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. The speakers include Trudi Lynn Smith, Cedric Bomford, Brandon Poole, Arnold Koroshegyi, and Laura Dutton, with Lynda Gammon as the moderator. 
 
Deliberately drawing attention to the condition of the photograph’s making, Dutton and Koroshegyi’s works both speak to our denaturalized world and the artists’ urge to represent the unrepresentable. Dutton’s work starts with photographs of urbanscapes and Koroshegyi’s work begins with artificial flowers; however, through the formal, conceptual, and material possibilities of photography the end result is a form of abstraction that opens up multiple meanings.

Film National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation 2016-12-04 13:00:00
Description

NATIONAL LAMPOON’S CHRISTMAS VACATION

Jeremiah Chechik, USA, 1989, 97 minutes; PG – coarse language

A glowingly goofy homage to family holidays. Suburban family man Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) gets all a-dither about a family holiday. He wants nothing less than a "fun, old-fashioned, family Christmas." 

For his dutiful wife (Beverly D'Angelo) and indulgent kids (Johnny Galecki, Juliette Lewis), this means that dad simply goes a little nuts: A trip to the woods for the tree, 25,000 outdoor lights, oversized presents, too many relatives — in short, Chase tries to cram too much holiday cheer into one family dwelling. 

In the spirit of anything-that-can-go-wrong-will-go-wrong, Christmas Vacation is a tightly bowed story of household delirium. --The Hollywood Reporter

“John Hughes wrote the screenplay for this silly, warm little guilty pleasure.” –Combustible Celluloid

Other Exploring Victoria's Gothic Revival 2016-12-05 11:30:00
Description

During the Victorian Era, the Middle Ages inspired artists, architects, poets and politicians. It was also a visual language through which conceptions of identity were expressed and exported throughout the British Empire. Join me for an informal walking-tour of Ross Bay Cemetery, Christ Church Cathedral and the Church of Our Lord as we consider this medieval "resonance" in our city's past.

 

Date and Time: Monday, Dec. 5th, 11:30 a.m.

Please meet outside Starbucks in the Fairfield Plaza.

*Don't forget your U-Pass! We'll take the #7 bus to Christ Church and the Church of Our Lord.

Film THINGS TO COME / L'AVENIR 2016-12-07 19:00:00
Description

THINGS TO COME  /  L’AVENIR

Director: Mia Hansen-Løve

France, 2016, 102 min; French with subttiles

The twists and turns of fate and the ways in which individuals react to them constitute the central preoccupations of Mia Hansen-Løve’s cinema. ‘Things to Come’ centers on the emotional tribulations of a woman in late middle-age. Isabelle Huppert plays Nathalie, a philosophy teacher at a Parisian high school. Newly divorced, newly orphaned, and with her two children grown-up and out of the house, Nathalie finds herself alone and on uncertain ground for the first time in 25 years. It’s difficult to imagine anyone realizing Nathalie as consummately as Huppert, who, even by her exceptionally high standards, pulls off a superlative performance. –The Film Stage

“A warm, funny and profoundly sensitive portrait of letting go.” --IndieWire

Rudolf Komorous Celebration

A concert of distinguished School of Music alumni performing music by legendary Czech-Canadian composer, bassoonist, and teacher Rudolf Komorous, in celebration of his 85th birthday, his contribution to Canadian music and to advanced music education. From 1971–1989 Rudolf Komorous taught composition and theory at UVic and later served as the School of Music’s Director. Many of his students went on to become successful composers and his music has made a major imprint on new music in Canada and beyond.

Works include Olympia (1964), Lurid Bride (1999), and the premiere of Stone House (2016) composed especially for this concert. Also on the program is Morning Glory by Linda Catlin Smith — one of Komorous's former students.


Prior to the concert, a short film inspired by the music of Rudolf Komorous — produced and directed by award-winning filmmaker John Bolton — will be screened at 7:45 p.m. in MacLaurin B037. All are welcome to attend.

Lecture/Seminar Safer Science: Making Psychological Science More Replicable 2016-12-08 19:00:00
Description

A fundamental part of the scientific enterprise is for each field to engage in critical self-examination to detect errors in our theories and methods, and improve them.  Psychology has recently been undergoing such a self-examination. Psychological scientists arguably tackle one of the hardest phenomena to understand and predict: human behavior. Naturally, our data are noisy and our findings are often tentative. However, we are slowly building knowledge and making our theories more complete. The recent self-analysis has revealed several ways we can further improve our research practices to make our findings more sound, including: collecting larger datasets (more participants, more kinds of measures, more observations), being more transparent about our research process and results, and conducting more replications.  These new norms are gaining steam within psychology and beyond, making science stronger.

Exhibit the absence of the origin of its likeness 2016-12-09 All Day
Description

Has this photograph been digitally altered? Did the scene it show actually occur? Since the photograph’s invention, people have been enamored by the image’s resemblance to its subject. But changes in the field of photography like digital imaging and editing have brought this into question. In the absence of the origin of its likeness, artists Laura Dutton and Arnold Koroshegyi examine these issues, using both analogue and digital technologies, to destabilize traditional readings and open up new avenues for making and looking at photographs. 
 
the absence of the origin of its likeness opens Friday, November 4 at 7:30 p.m. at Open Space. The exhibition runs until Saturday, December 10. A panel discussion will be held on Saturday, November 5 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. The speakers include Trudi Lynn Smith, Cedric Bomford, Brandon Poole, Arnold Koroshegyi, and Laura Dutton, with Lynda Gammon as the moderator. 
 
Deliberately drawing attention to the condition of the photograph’s making, Dutton and Koroshegyi’s works both speak to our denaturalized world and the artists’ urge to represent the unrepresentable. Dutton’s work starts with photographs of urbanscapes and Koroshegyi’s work begins with artificial flowers; however, through the formal, conceptual, and material possibilities of photography the end result is a form of abstraction that opens up multiple meanings.

Lecture/Seminar Searching for Habitable Planets around Alpha Centauri 2016-12-10 19:30:00
Description

Dr. Christian Marois of the National Research Council's Herzberg Institute will give a talk entitled “Searching for Habitable Planets around our Closest Neighbors, the Alpha Centauri Triple Star System” as part of Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, Victoria Centre's monthly meeting.

The Alpha Centauri star system is ideal to search for habitable planets by various observing techniques due to its proximity and wide range of stellar masses. Given the recent discovery of an Earth-size planet candidate located inside the Proxima Centauri habitable zone, Dr. Marios will discuss this remarkable discovery and the planet’s potential to find life, and also discuss the current project to discover similar planets around the two sun-like star located 15,000 AU from Proxima Centauri. The Alpha Centauri system is the prime target of the Breakthrough Starshot program, a project to send small quarter-size probes to explore these new worlds.
 
Bio: Dr Marois completed his Ph.D. at the Université de Montréal in 2004, with a thesis focussing on the limits in exoplanet imaging In 2008, while at NRC, he led the team that took the first image of another planet outside the solar system (HR 8799). He is currently part of the Gemini Planet Imager campaign and is developing instruments for imaging Earth-like planets from the Gemini South Observatory and the planned Thirty-Metre Telescope.
