Film "Maleficient" 2014-08-31 19:00:00
Description

MALEFICENT

Director: Robert Stromberg   USA, 2014, 98 minutes; PG

Cast: Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley

Angelina Jolie doesn’t chew the scenery in Maleficent — she infuses it, wielding a magnetic and effortless power as the magnificently malevolent fairy who places a curse on a newborn princess. She’s the heart and soul of Disney’s revisionist, live-action look at its most popular cartoon villain, the Mistress of All Evil from 1959’s Sleeping Beauty. A few bumpy patches notwithstanding, the new feature is an exquisitely designed, emotionally absorbing work of dark enchantment. The handsome prince is a bit player in a story whose true center is a love that has nothing to do with happily-ever-after romance. –The Hollywood Reporter

“Long live the feminist revisionist back story!” –The Globe and Mail

“Watch Angelina Jolie devour the scenery in the role she was born for.”The Diva Review

Film "TRACKS" 2014-09-02 19:00:00
Description

TRACKS

Director: John Curran   Australia, 2013, 112 minutes

Cast: Mia Wasikowska, Adam Driver, Rainer Bock

“A STIRRING AND BEAUTIFULLY SHOT ACCOUNT OF THE AUTHOR ROBYN DAVIDSON’S REAL-LIFE JOURNEY BY CAMEL ACROSS THE AUSTRALIAN OUTBACK.” --Independent

A journey of arduous physical challenges and incalculable spiritual rewards is evocatively rendered in this superb adaptation. Robyn Davidson’s remarkable journey in 1977 across 1,700 miles of Australian desert to the Indian Ocean with four camels and a dog is given a richly sensorial screen treatment. Alternately haunting, inspiring and dreamily meditative, this is a visually majestic film of transfixing moods and textures. Its stealth-like emotional charge is fueled by unerring work from Mia Wasikowska, her affecting performance grounded in the fortitude and determination essential to such an undertaking, at the same time subtly keeping an open window to her character’s fragility. –The Hollywood Reporter

“TRACKS WILL LEAD YOU TO A PLACE OF QUIET WONDER.”  –The Telegraph

Exhibit Reception: Meet guest curator Dr. Bohdan S. Kordan 2014-09-05 14:00:00
Description

Money, Sovereignty and Power: 
The Paper Currency of Revolutionary Ukraine, 1917-1920

August 22, 2014 to November 3, 2014

Curated by Professor Bohdan Kordan (Director, Prairie Centre for the Study of Ukrainian Heritage, St. Thomas More College, University of Saskatchewan) and with the support of the Department of Slavic Studies.

 

For hours & location click here

In the wake of the Great War, from the detritus of imperial collapse there emerged a new political order of nation-states. Amongst the newly established entities there appeared an independent, sovereign Ukraine. From the outset, Ukraine was the object of invasion and its survival was in doubt. Nevertheless, in the search for legitimacy, extraordinary efforts were made to affirm the state's sovereign, national character. This was to be accomplished by consciously connecting with Ukraine's historical past both to invoke precedence and encourage a narrative of political continuity. The symbols introduced in the currency of Ukraine during this revolutionary period were examples of this process. The exhibit "Money, Sovereignty and Power: The Paper Currency of Revolutionary Ukraine" documents this process, describing the use of symbols in the currency produced by various successive governments during the period of the Ukrainian Revolution.

Film "EDGE OF TOMORROW" Toonie Madness! Only $2 for UVic undergrads! 2014-09-05 19:00:00
Description

EDGE OF TOMORROW    

TOONIE MADNESS! Only $2 for UVic undergrads!

Director: Doug Liman   USA, 2104, 114 min; PG

Cast: Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Brendan Gleeson, Bill Paxton

“SUPRISINGLY IMAGINATIVE!” –Entertainment Weekly

“A FURIOUSLY TIME-LOOPING JOY RIDE!” –Time

It's a familiar sci-fi mashup, but director Doug Liman knows how to find the fun and the thrills in this tale of an alien-fighting soldier who lives the same day over and over again. Tom Cruise has a killer case of déjà vu and he's not the only one; viewers will pick out plot elements from “Groundhog Day,” “Starship Troopers,” “Source Code,” and “The Butterfly Effect” from this exciting sci-fi action epic. The familiarity never gets in the way of the fun.  –The Wrap
