Film MAGICIAN: The Astonishing Life & Work of Orson Welles 2015-08-04 19:00:00
Description

MAGICIAN: The Astonishing Life & Work of Orson Welles   

Director: Chuck Workman   USA, 2014, 92 min; PG

Young people should know Orson Welles, and Chuck Workman’s fine, brisk and thoroughly entertaining overview easily makes the case why. In brilliant strokes, Workman captures the “boy genius,” who revolutionized theater in his teens. Then there was radio, which he conquered by Martian invasion, leading to Hollywood. That’s where he reinvented the movies. There are generous samples of Welles’ acting, which could be hammy but rarely was boring. The man was a master at playing to his audience. And then there are the films, every one — from “Citizen Kane” and “The Stranger” through “Touch of Evil” and “Chimes at Midnight” — a masterpiece.  –Movie Nation

Exhibit unlimited edition 2015-08-05 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.

Film I?LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS 2015-08-06 19:00:00
Description

I’LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS

Director: Brett Haley   USA, 2015, 97 min; PG

Blythe Danner plays Carol, a seventy-something retired teacher, widowed for twenty years, who feels vaguely lonely but isn't sure she's interested in dating. Urged on by her friends (the audacious Rhea Perlman, Mary Kay Place, and June Squibb), she tries speed-dating, with ridiculous results.

Practically out of nowhere, the most radiant of silver foxes appears —played by the almost criminally appealing Sam Elliott — and sparks a romance that just might be the something Carol has been half-hoping for. I'll See You in My Dreams is only partly a movie about romance post-70, and perhaps more a picture about friendships….

This isn't just a nice little movie for older people: There's some real bite to the way it deals with the life questions that come with aging. –Village Voice

“A work of quiet, crystalline empathy.” –Boston Globe

Conference Management and the New Demographic: Unleashing the Economic and Organizational Potential of Migrants, Diaspora and Boundaryless Workforce 2015-08-08 09:00:00
Description

The world is experiencing unprecedented levels of mobility and migration, profoundly impacting firms, economies, and societies. Immigration has given rise to growing numbers of bicultural and multicultural members of the workforce who have special potential for today’s global firms and for ongoing sustainablility and competitive growth of industries. 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.

This PDW/ Thinktank will feature keynotes from Academy of Mangagement scholars and a distinguished panel of integration specialists and business practitioners from British Columbia, the Canadian province with the highest and fastest growing immigrant population. Please join us for a full day of thoughtful dialogue to consider opportunities to improve policy, practice, effectiveness and creativity around this pressing issue.
