ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD

Director: Suzanne Crocker;  Canada, 2014, 89 min; rated G

WINNER!  AUDIENCE FAVOURITE AWARD! –Victoria Film Festival

“INTIMATE, FUNNY AND INSPIRING!” –Vancouver International Film Festival

A documentary about a family's experiences - as shot by the Mom! - going off the grid in a cabin in the wilds of the Yukon, with no electronic devices besides the equipment used to document the experience, no neighbours, no school, no grocery stores - nothing but the family and the forest and the cabin. They live there for nine months, wintering there. There are no cell phones, no TV, no internet, and no one for the three kids (two girls and a boy) to play with other than each other (and two cats and a dog). While much of the warmth of the movie comes from the family's interactions, there's a serious and rather inspiring message about our overreliance on technology. I normally don't recommend family-friendly, heartwarming, uplifting films, but this one is all of those and yet still terrific and important. --Alienated in Vancouver

Lecture/Seminar Low-Risk Cannabis Use on Campus 2015-04-20 10:00
Description

We are very excited to be offering an enhanced version of the webinar “Putting the Pieces Together: Low-Risk Cannabis Use on Campus.” The current atmosphere around cannabis on Canadian campuses and in society is quite hazy. This is partly the result of conflicting messages around the impact of consumption on those who use the substance. This webinar will aim to dispel some of the haze.

Film DOUBLE FEATURE! 2015-04-21 19:00:00
Description

DOUBLE FEATURE!

7PM:  TAKING MY PARENTS TO BURNING MAN  (82 min)

9PM:  SHOOTING THE MUSICAL  (93 min)

Director Joel Ashton McCarthy will be here for a Q&A!

TMPTBM is a fun documentary chronicle of Spry Bry, a DJ and entertainer, who takes his loving parents to Burning Man!  

IDirector Joel McCarthy will also present his new film, SHOOTING THE MUSICAL, a dark, comedic mockumentary about a Vancouver group of film school graduates attempting to create the most offensive film of all time: 'High School Shooting the Musical'.

It’s like a movie within a movie, within a movie. A year after graduating from film school, Adam Baxter, the film’s anti­hero, thought he’d be making Hollywood blockbusters, but instead found himself broke and jobless.

When his roommate commits suicide, Adam sees opportunity for fame and fortune in his dead friend’s final script. Relying on sympathy donations, Adam gathers a rag­tag team of unemployed film grads to produce Max’s script. Adam then decides to turn Max’ script into a comedy musical romp titled ‘High School Shooting The Musical’.

It is not only crude, shocking and offensive, but it is utterly and completely hilarious. Okay there is nothing funny about school shootings, but a mockumentary about someone trying to make a film about one certainly is. –Vancity Buzz

Film THE IMITATION GAME 2015-04-22 19:00:00
Description

THE IMITATION GAME

Morten Tyldum; UK, 2014, 115 min; PG

ACADEMY AWARD WINNER! BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY

A highly simplified version of the highly complex life of proto-computer genius, World War II code breaker, and gay martyr Alan Turing — but even with all its distortions it tells a cracking good story. Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) insists that his machine will make fast work of the complex Nazi “Enigma” code. The film is true to the extraordinary friendship between Turing and Joan Clarke (Keira Knightley). –New York Magazine

Lecture/Seminar CFGS Global Talk with Mary Yoko Brannen: Management and the New Demographic: Unleashing the Economic and Organizational Potential of Migrants, Diaspora, and a Boundaryless Workforce 2015-04-22 10:30:00
Description

The world is experiencing unprecedented levels of mobility and migration, and this increasing flow of workers across country borders is having a profound impact on firms, economies, and societies. Immigration has given rise to growing numbers of bicultural and multicultural  members of the workforce who have the potential to be an important resource for today’s global firms and for ongoing sustainablility and competitive growth of industries.  History has however shown that the integration of these new communities and individuals into the workforce often fails, at least in part because of perceived problems with language, culture, and attitudes on the part of both employers and employees.

In line with the 2015 AOM conference theme, “Opening Governance”, the proposed PDW invites members to a full-day open forum/thinktank together with policy makers, integration specialists and business practitioners from British Columbia—the Canadian province with the highest and fastest growing immigrant population, to consider opportunities to improve policy and practice effectiveness and creativity around this pressing issue. 

Mary Yoko Brannen studies people with backgrounds similar to her own - individuals of mixed cultural heritage who are the incoming workplace demographic. 
As a cross-cultural consultant with over 25 years of experience, Dr. Brannen actively helps multinational firms value, integrate, manage, and deploy their organizational resources - managerial talent, employees, and partners - so they can better achieve their global strategic goals and maintain a competitive advantage. 
She is also an expert on how knowledge and ideas get shared across, and integrated into, different cultural contexts.

Lecture/Seminar The Didymo Story 2015-04-23 16:00:00
Description

Max L. Bothwell
Environment Canada

Blooms of the river benthic diatom Didymosphenia geminata began appearing in rivers on Vancouver Island in the early 1990s.  Initial investigations into the probable environmental cause of these blooms proved inconclusive.  Following the Vancouver Island episode, D. geminata blooms began appearing in other places in the Northern Hemisphere and in the 2000s in the Southern Hemisphere.  British Columbia Steelhead Tag data suggested that the spread of D. geminata on Vancouver Island might have resulted from the movement of a new bloom-forming variant.  The view that D. geminata blooms are caused by the movement of cells among watersheds by people, has been widely accepted.

However, now the idea that D. geminata in North America is a new variant is in question.  Studies in New Zealand established the counterintuitive fact that D. geminata blooms only form under conditions of very low phosphorus.  Increased extracellular polysaccharide stalk production under P-starvation provides a mechanism for bloom formation.  Since D. geminata is native to the Northern Hemisphere and the only demonstrated trigger for blooms is extremely low phosphorus, blooms may actually signal the onset of oligotrophication.  Several mechanisms are identified that can reduce P concentrations in rivers.  Atmospheric N-deposition can lead to greater P deficiency in lakes.  In other cases anthropogenic enrichment of landscapes with nitrogen seems a likely culprit behind the blooms.  Climatic warming has also been implicated in declining P.  The extremely low phosphorus concentrations that are the proximate cause of D. geminata blooms point toward a potential declining productivity of lotic ecosystems worldwide.

Film Heaven on Earth Film Screening 2015-04-23 19:00:00
Description

Heaven on Earth is an award winning feature film by Canadian director and writer Deepa Mehta. The film tells the story of a young woman who travels from India to Canada to marry, and who becomes trapped with an abusive husband. Beautifully filmed and rich with vibrant imagery, the film presents a sensitive portrayal of the young woman's experiences of domestic violence and her courageous efforts to free herself.
 
Chand's dream of a new life in Canada morphs into a nightmare as marriage to Rocky and his family becomes a numbing spiral of confusion and pain. Chand finds hope in her friendship with Rosa, a street-smart woman from Jamaica who works with Chand at a laundry factory. Rosa gives Chand a magical root and promises that it will make Rocky fall deeply in love with her. The experiment ends in a surreal parallel life that mirrors an Indian fable involving a King Cobra.

CAKE

Director: Daniel Barnz;  USA, 2014, 102 min; PG

Jennifer Aniston takes on 15 extra pounds and takes off the makeup, and her performance is a triumph that might go some distance toward redefining her in the eyes of the public. She plays Claire, a woman suffering from chronic pain. All we know at first is that she experienced some trauma in the recent past. Every move hurts. She also seems to have a knack for alienating people. “Cake” follows Claire as she goes about her life, trying to find the reasons behind the suicide of a young friend (Anna Kendrick), but her search is halfhearted…..Aniston should have been nominated for a best actress Oscar. –San Francisco Chronicle
