Description

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD

Director: Thomas Vinterberg   UK, 2015, 119 min; PG

Cast: Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Sheen, Tom Sturridge

“CAREY MULLIGAN IS MAGNIFICENT!” –Salon

Thomas Hardy’s classic Victorian tale about one woman’s dueling desires for feminist independence and fiery passion. Danish director Thomas Vinterberg’s latest film version is the best yet. With a steely resilience burning beneath her delicate, creamy complexion, Carey Mulligan brings remarkable nuance to the role of Bathsheba Everdene, an English country girl who inherits her late uncle’s farm, leading to a trio of romantic suitors: the earthy shepherd (Matthias Schoenaerts), the rich landowner next door (Michael Sheen), and the rakish bad boy in uniform (Tom Sturridge). Mulligan refuses to play the helpless, hapless victim. She’s strong and smart and sensual. –Entertainment Weekly

Description

THE WOLFPACK

Director: Crystal Moselle   USA, 2015, 90 min; PG

 

WINNER! GRAND JURY PRIZE –Sundance Film Festival

 

“A RARE, TRANSCENDENT WORK OF ART!” –New York Magazine

 

“FIVE STARS!” –The Guardian

 

“EXTRAORDINARY!” –Time Magazine

 

"UNLIKE ANY DOCUMENTARY YOU’VE EVER SEEN.” --Indiwire

 

"ONCE YOU’VE MET THESE KIDS YOU WON’T FORGET THEM!” --Rolling Stone

 

“ONE OF THE MOST INCREDIBLE DOCS I’VE SEEN ANYWHERE. HAS TO BE SEEN TO BE BELIEVED!” –Toronto Star

Movies can change your life, but can they save it? For most people that probably sounds foolish, but the six brothers featured in the astonishing documentary “The Wolfpack” aren’t most people. For much of their lives, these six ingenious young men used the movies to imaginatively if not physically break out of their Lower Manhattan apartment. Even as their father all but imprisoned them, they made great metaphoric escapes by immersing themselves in the fictional realms created by directors like Francis Ford Coppola and Quentin Tarantino.

The Angulo brothers — now ages 23 to 16 — made their escapes the way many people do, by watching movies at home on VHS and DVD. But they also recreated favorites like “The Dark Knight” using handmade costumes. For them, movies were a form of self-expression as well as a kind of survival.

That makes this warm, disarmingly optimistic documentary sound desperately sad when it’s anything but. Sometimes, all you need is a great subject to make a great documentary. A gifted editor helped in shaping a streamlined chronicle of love and resilience.  --The New York Times

Conference Critical Holocaust Education in a Time of Transition Conference 2015-09-01 08:00:00
Description

Seventy years after the end of WWII, this conference examines global connections in Holocaust education in two distinct ways: by highlighting the personal and professional relationships forged across the globe when researching and memorializing the Shoah and by examining the relationship between Holocaust education and other contemporary and historical issues and events. As the Shoah becomes increasingly distant history with fewer survivors around to tell their stories and share their living memory, conference participants delve into critical questions about the relevance and impact of Holocaust education in today’s world.

Exhibit unlimited edition 2015-09-02 10:00
Description

unlimited edition attempts to construct an art historical framework that looks at how prints by Aboriginal and Inuit artists represented in the Kamloops Art Gallery's permanent collection, supplemented by works on loan from the Carleton University Art Gallery and Legacy Art Galleries, represent a drive to preserve, portray and popularize oral histories and address social inequities in the medium of printmaking. Featuring prints from Northwest Coast, Woodlands and Inuit artists with a focus on an early period of printmaking in the 50s through to the 70s, unlimited edition showcases prints that relate to ideas of cultural story, politics of land, and the beauty of Indigenous aesthetics.

Description

Seventy years after the end of WWII, this conference examines global connections in Holocaust education in two distinct ways: by highlighting the personal and professional relationships forged across the globe when researching and memorializing the Shoah and by examining the relationship between Holocaust education and other contemporary and historical issues and events. As the Shoah becomes increasingly distant history with fewer survivors around to tell their stories and share their living memory, conference participants delve into critical questions about the relevance and impact of Holocaust education in today’s world.

Film JIMMY'S HALL 2015-09-04 19:00:00
Description

JIMMY’S HALL

Director: Ken Loach   UK/Ireland, 2014, 109 minutes

Ken Loach has taken a despicable episode of modern Irish history — the 1933 deportation without trial of one of its own citizens, James Gralton (Barry Ward) — and made a surprisingly lovely, heartfelt film from it. A thematic sequel of sorts to his “The Wind That Shakes the Barley,” Loach’s 24th fiction feature finds the activist-minded director trafficking in familiar themes of individual liberties, institutional oppression and the power of collective organizing, here infused with a gentle romanticism that buoys the film without cheapening the gravity of its subject. All told, it’s a minor-key but eminently enjoyable work by a master craftsman.  --Variety
