Film "The Immigrant" starring Marion Cotillard 2014-09-14 19:00:00
Description

THE IMMIGRANT

Director: James Gray   USA, 2014, 118 minutes; PG

Cast: Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix, Jeremy Renner

“FIVE STARS!” –Time Out New York

Marion Cotillard has made her share of unremarkable films. But when the French star, who won the Academy Award for her Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose, gets it right, the result is magic. Her Piaf was that. So was the whale trainer in Rust and Bone. In the title role of The Immigrant, as Ewa, a destitute Pole who arrives in New York City in 1921 in search of the American Dream, she once again astounds.

Ewa is plucked from the deportation line by Bruno Weiss (Joaquin Phoenix), who hands the guard a few bills to facilitate Ewa's hasty transfer to a Manhattan-bound boat. In fact, Bruno runs a bevy of bawdy women in a burlesque hall, offering their supplemental services to men willing to pay. He keeps his "little doves" several flights up in the tenement where he lives. Phoenix plays this guy with a kind of unpredictable, flummoxed charm. He can be wily and confident one minute, needy and pathetic the next.

Of course, Bruno falls in love with Ewa. And of course, there is a rival: Emil, also known as Orlando the Magician, a glinty-eyed prestidigitator (watch him levitate!) played with charisma and a pencil-thin mustache by Jeremy Renner. Bruno and Emil have a long history - in fact, they are cousins.

Cotillard gives Ewa an inner life, full of ferocity, vulnerability, cunning. In her peacock feathers and her cheap flapper's jewelry, or in a dark woolen shawl, huddled in the night, this woman is absolutely wondrous, absolutely real. –Philadelphia Inquirer

Lecture/Seminar Python Workshop 2014-09-15 19:00:00
Description

Python is a widely used general-purpose, high-level programming language. Its design philosophy emphasizes code readability, and its syntax allows programmers to express concepts in fewer lines of code than would be possible in languages such as C. 

This two-day short course will provide an introduction to the Python language. If you bring your own laptop with Python preinstalled, you can try out the program examples for yourself while the course is proceeding. No previous programming experience is required, though it will help if you have some idea of what programming is about.

Film Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" 2014-09-15 19:00:00
Description

THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL

Director: Wes Anderson   USA, 2014, 100 min; 14A

Cast: Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Harvey Keitel, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schwartman, Tilda Swinton, Owen Wilson

“WONDERFUL!” –The Telegraph

“FANCIFUL!” –Salon.com

“MARVELOUS!” –Entertainment Weekly

“NOTHING SHORT OF AN ENCHANTMENT!” –Austin Chronicle

An elaborate and delightful work of tragicomic confectionery set at an imaginary resort in an imaginary country that depicts the interwar years in Europe largely as a set of high-society hijinks out of 1930s Hollywood comedies. Anderson’s cast features one of Ralph Fiennes’ best performances and is loaded with peculiar delights, including cameos by Bill Murray and Owen Wilson. His script is loaded with zingers and divided into chapters with on-screen titles. This is one of Anderson’s funniest and most fanciful movies, but perversely enough it may also be his most serious, most tragic and most shadowed by history, shot through with an overwhelming sense of loss. –Salon.com

MERCEDES SOSA:  La voz de Latinoamérica [The Voice of Latin America); by Rodrigo H. Vila (Argentina, 2013 - 90 mins)

With millions of records sold, thousands of concerts all over the world, and countless fans (and detractors), Argentine folksinger Mercedes Sosa left behind an indelible legacy.  Featuring unforgettable performances that span Sosa's 60-year career, and interviews with musicians like Pablo Milanés, Chico Buarque and David Byrne, this stirring portrait takes us on an in-depth, intimate journey through her life, revealing an artist and advocate for social justice who became one of the most influential personalities of the 20th century.

Lecture/Seminar A Blueprint for Watershed Governance in B.C. 2014-09-17 09:00:00
Description

On September 17th, the WSP is hosting the first webinar in its 2014/2015 Creating a Blue Dialogue webinar series. Register now!

WHAT: A Blueprint for Watershed Governance in British Columbia
DATE: Wednesday, September 17th, 2014
TIME: 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. PT (12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. ET)

In this webinar, Oliver M. Brandes (Co-Director, POLIS Project on Ecological Governance) and Jon O’Riordan (Strategic Advisor, POLIS Project on Ecological Governance; Former Deputy Minister, B.C. Ministry of Sustainable Resource Management) will explore current water and watershed governance issues in British Columbia. The focus will be on some of the “winning conditions” needed to move towards a more sophisticated approach to watershed governance in B.C. This discussion on the evolving state of watershed governance will be relevant across Canada, but will be grounded in the context of changes in B.C., including the introduction of B.C.’s new Water Sustainability Act.

The session will close with a broader discussion of the emerging priority issues and potential next steps as jurisdictions across Canada seek to achieve the goal of enhanced watershed management and better governance of their home waters.

Lecture/Seminar Visiting Artist Series presents THOMAS KNEUB?HLER 2014-09-17 20:00:00
Description

Born in Solothurn, Switzerland, Thomas Kneubhler has been living in Canada since 2000. In 2003, he completed a Master's degree in Studio Arts at Concordia University, Montral. His work often deals with social issues and how technology is affecting people's lives. His work has been presented in many exhibitions in both Europe and North America, most recently at the Qubec Triennial 2011 at the Muse d'art contemporain de Montral. In 2011, he was awarded the Pratt & Whitney Canada Prize of the Conseil des arts de Montral. "Whether it is the ambiguous boundaries of public and private space, the all-pervasive spectre of security surveillance or even the radiant, if dehumanizing, beauty of cityscapes, Kneubhler's practice tellingly identifies the co-existing insecurities, uncertainties and subtle pleasures embedded in the structures of modern life." (Bryne McLaughlin, Canadian Art Magazine). Thomas Kneubhler's visit is co-sponsored by Open Space.

Film Film Week: 7 BOXES; by Juan Carlos Maneglia and Tana Schembori (Paraguay, 2012 - 100 mins) 2014-09-17 19:00:00
Description

7 Cajas (7 Boxes); by Juan Carlos Maneglia and Tana Schembori (Paraguay, 2012 - 100 mins)

Víctor, a 17 year old pushcart porter, makes a living at the Municipal Market.  He dreams of becoming famous, often absorbed by the TV in the appliance store.  He receives an unusual proposal:  to carry 7 boxes of unknown content, in exchange for a torn half of a $100 bill.  He will get the other half when he finishes the job.  Víctor embarks on the journey, but there is something in those boxes that starts a high-speed wheelbarrow chase in the secret and gloomy corridors of the market.  Víctor and his pursuers will get involved in a thick plot that will lead to a surprising ending....  7 Boxes was nominated at the 27th Goya Awards for Best Spanish Language Foreign Film representing Paraguay.

The 5th Latin American and Spanish Film Week is organized by the Hispanic Film Society of Victoria and sponsored by the Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies, the Department of Women's Studies, the Division of Continuing Studies, the Faculty of Social Sciences, the Office of Community Relations and the Office of the Vice-President Academic and Provost at the University of Victoria, as well as by CRD Arts Development Service and the Consulate General of Mexico in Vancouver.

Description

ROSARIO; by Shula Erenberg (Mexico, 2012 - 70 mins)

Rosario is the intimate life-portrait of Rosario Ibarra de Piedra, a Mexican woman, who in 1975, when she was 48 years old, suffered the political disappearance of her son in the city of Monterrey.  After that moment her life made a dramatic turn:  from middle-class housewife to social fighter.  She has become a political referent in modern Mexico, going from the tireless search for her missing son to assuming a life project dedicated to the defense of human rights and government accountability.

The 5th Latin American and Spanish Film Week is organized by the Hispanic Film Society of Victoria and sponsored by the Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies, the Department of Women's Studies, the Division of Continuing Studies, the Faculty of Social Sciences, the Office of Community Relations and the Office of the Vice-President Academic and Provost at the University of Victoria, as well as by CRD Arts Development Service and the Consulate General of Mexico in Vancouver.

This lecture will address the various ways in which Islamic reformers have dealt with the construction of social orders and forms of subjectivity in the modern age. Using various examples, we will examine the ways Muslim individuals and communities have used both global as well as Islamic ideas to construct modern Islamic identities.  These insights challenge those who would argue that Western modernity and contemporary Islamic ways of life cannot coexist.

Dietrich Jung is a Professor and Director of the Center for Contemporary Middle East Studies, University of Southern Denmark. He holds a MA in Political Science and Islamic Studies and a PhD from the University of Hamburg.  Professor Jung has large field experience in the Muslim world and has published numerous scholarly articles and ten books. The most recent book is: The Politics of Modern Muslim Subjectivities: Islam, Youth and Social Activism in the Middle East, (with Marie Juul Petersen and Sara Lei Sparre), New York: Palgrave (2014).

Film Film Week: THE AMAZING CATFISH; by Claudia Saint-Luce (Mexico, 2013 - 89 mins) 2014-09-19 19:00:00
Description

LOS INSÓLITOS PECES GATO [The Amazing Catfish]; by Claudia Saint-Luce (Mexico, 2013 - 89 mins)

Claudia, a lonely young woman, ends up in hospital with a severe case of appendicitis.  There, she meets Marta, the woman resting in the bed next to hers.  Marta, who lives with her four children, gains Claudia's trust.  When Marta gets out of the hospital, she suggests that Claudia go home with them.  Getting to know this family makes Claudia feel at ease, and for the first time she experiences a sense of belonging in this peculiar little tribe.  As Marta's health weakens, the bond Claudia has with each member of the family grows stronger.  An endearing family comedy, The Amazing Catfish was recognized as the best Latin American feature at the 2014 Mar del Plata International Film Festival and was awarded the Fipresci Prize in the Discovery Program for emerging directors at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.

The 5th Latin American and Spanish Film Week is organized by the Hispanic Film Society of Victoria and sponsored by the Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies, the Department of Women's Studies, the Division of Continuing Studies, the Faculty of Social Sciences, the Office of Community Relations and the Office of the Vice-President Academic and Provost at the University of Victoria, as well as by CRD Arts Development Service and the Consulate General of Mexico in Vancouver.

We are grateful for the support of the Passion for Tango Society, the CFUV radio program Postales Musicales de Latinoamérica (101.9 FM), and community member Randall Recinos-Drago.

Lecture/Seminar One Wave Festival 2014 2014-09-19 13:00:00
Description

Pacific Peoples’ Partnership (PPP) is hosting the 7th annual One Wave Festival on Friday September 19th and Saturday September 20th.  One Wave is PPP’s inspired action to celebrate and honor connections to the Pacific while building identity and community. The purpose of One Wave is to engage individuals to create one movement amongst all peoples to address issues including: cultural integrity, language loss, climate change, ocean pollution, food security, Indigenous identity, racism, and long-term effects of colonialism.

These issues will be addressed at the free-admission Changemakers’ Summit on Friday September 19th co-hosted by the Centre for Asia Pacific Initiatives, and held at the University of Victoria Cadboro Commons from 1:00-3:30 PM. A panel presentation entitled, “Puppets, Performers, & Social Change” featuring changemakers such as Sutrisno Hartana, Wendy Passmore, and Jeremy Bally, will explore the role of the arts in acts of social transformation.

After the presentation, attendees will break out in groups led by various non-government officials (NGOs) including World Fisheries Trust, Cascadian Crusaders, and Raincoast Conservation Foundation, to discuss ways of becoming active in creating social change. The Puppets for Peace will also play a main role in this event with a puppet-making and performance workshop.

 

More free-admission workshops and performances will take place on Saturday September 20th in the Pacific Arts and Culture Showcase from 12:00-6:00 PM in Centennial Square. The day’s events will feature live music, spoken word, and dance performances from the North and South Pacific. There will be face painting, chalk art, storytelling, and various other interactive arts performances. Costumed performers (Cascadian Crusaders) and walking stilt puppets (Puppets for Peace) will also be highlights at the event. Local NGOs will be present in the vendor village to promote their respective missions.  Kids and families are welcome.

For more information about this event, please contact PPP’s Media Relations representative Kat Zimmer at 250-381-4131. Currently, One Wave is seeking more volunteers, vendors, and artists to participate in this multi-cultural event. If you are interested, please email info@pacificpeoplespartnership.org.

Lecture/Seminar The Natural City 2014-09-19 14:45:00
Description

The Natural City

Vic Derman
Councillor, District of Saanich

Our “Auto-centric” cities and towns have produced a myriad of unsustainable outcomes, including loss of open space, environmental degradation, and choking congestion. Increasingly, they have become unattractive, inhospitable, and a blight on the planet that hosts us. It’s way PAST TIME to produce communities designed for people, harmonious with local environments, and able to address the challenges of a very different twenty-first century world.
The Natural City presents a visionary, comprehensive, and thought provoking approach to our urban future. It’s a transformative future critical for today’s residents and those who come after us.

Film Film Week: THE DELAY; by Rodrigo Pla (Uruguay, 2012 - 84 mins) 2014-09-20 19:00:00
Description

LA DEMORA [The Delay]; by Rodrigo Plá (Uruguay, 2012 - 84 mins)

A single mother with three kids works from home as a tailor for a big textile firm.  She is left with taking care of her aging father, who also lives at home.  Welfare agencies turn down her request for taking in her father because she is not below the poverty line.  One day while returning home with him, she takes a fateful decision, one that, eventually, she will come to regret....  A drama that touches on the economic and psychological strains on the contemporary family, The Delay is a masterfully directed film that leads the spectator to a suspenseful resolution.

The 5th Latin American and Spanish Film Week is organized by the Hispanic Film Society of Victoria and sponsored by the Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies, the Department of Women's Studies, the Division of Continuing Studies, the Faculty of Social Sciences, the Office of Community Relations and the Office of the Vice-President Academic and Provost at the University of Victoria, as well as by CRD Arts Development Service and the Consulate General of Mexico in Vancouver.
