Description

SUGAR COATED

Director: Michèle Hozer; USA, 2015, 90 minutes

This compelling investigative doc exposes the US sugar industry’s systematic hijacking of scientific study to bury evidence that sugar is, in fact, toxic. For 40 years, Big Sugar deflected threats to its multibillion-dollar empire through creative PR and tactics strikingly similar to the way the tobacco industry disguised the fact that its products are addictive and cause fatal illnesses. As obesity rates skyrocket and doctors treat the first generation of children suffering from fatty liver disease, the sugar industry has come under increasing scrutiny from emerging scientific and medical studies.

Sugar Coated introduces us to crusaders like pediatric endocrinologist Dr. Robert Lustig, superstar professor from San Francisco who brought down Big Tobacco, Stanton Glantz, and Denver dentist Cristin Kearns, who exposes one sugar company’s playbook to co-opt research and discredit critics. While the industry steps up its advertising spin and lobbying efforts, Sugar Coated warns that we are sitting on a dietary time bomb. –Hot Docs 2015

Film SUNSET BLVD. 2015-06-30 19:00:00
Description

Billy Wilder classic!

SUNSET BLVD.

Billy Wilder, USA, 1950 110 min.

Billy Wilder's noir-comic classic about decay in Hollywood remains as pungent as ever. William Holden is the cynical young screenwriter who pulls into the driveway of a seedy mansion belonging to Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson), a forgotten silent movie star. The demented old movie queen lives in the past, assisted by her devoted butler (Erich von Stroheim). Sunset Blvd. is one of the great movies--but it's no relic. Wow, does it ever hold up.  --Amazon

“THE BEST DRAMA EVER MADE ABOUT THE MOVIES BECAUSE ITS SEES THROUGH THE ILLUSIONS.” –Roger Ebert

“FIVE STARS! A DELICIOUS COMEDY WITH A PSYCHO EDGE.” –The Guardian

Lecture/Seminar EAP (English for Academic Purposes) & Special Topics Workshop 2015-07-01 13:00
Description

These workshops will help you to improve your academic communication skills in a wide variety of contexts. Wish you were a grammar expert or better at public speaking? It’s never too late!

The EAP Help workshops are a great way to learn something new about the English language and improve your written and spoken communication skills through instruction and practice.

After EAP Help, stay for the Special Topics workshops, where you’ll get a chance to practice the skills you’ve learned in different contexts, or engage in academic discussions with your peers.

Students of every English proficiency level and background are welcome. Bring your questions about grammatical terminology, structure, and usage, or about writing, critical reading and thinking, or pretty much anything else that’s English-language or academic-communication related!

The final session of each month has been left unplanned so that you can give Gillian and Allie suggestions for topics and have workshops designed especially for you!

Film BEING CANADIAN 2015-07-01 19:00:00
Description

BEING CANADIAN

Director: Robert Cohen;  Canada, 2015, 90 minutes

In this playful and charming ode to Canadiana, Calgarian-turned-Hollywood comedy writing guru Robert Cohen (The Simpsons, The Big Bang Theory) comes home on an epic quest to rediscover Canada’s national identity. Shocked and amused by how little his American friends and colleagues know about their northern neighbours, Cohen's mission is to dispel the stereotypes (most people live in igloos), misconceptions (all police ride horses) and absurd inaccuracies (Canada's population is 6,000) he was starting to hear too often.

Set up as coast-to-coast road movie—a tongue-in-cheek nod to Donald Shebib's Goin' Down the Road—Cohen crosses paths with delightful eccentrics and little-known national treasures, like Canada's strategic reserve of maple syrup. With an all-star line-up of Canadian comics Mike Myers, Seth Rogen, Will Arnett, Rick Mercer and Martin Short, musicians Rush and the Barenaked Ladies, and thought-leaders Malcolm Gladwell and Kim Campbell—Being Canadian takes us on a hilarious and insightful journey full of true patriot love. –Hot Docs 2015

Film SUNSHINE ON LEITH 2015-07-03 19:10:00
Description

SUNSHINE ON LEITH

Director: Dexter Fletcher;  UK, 2013, 96 minutes; rated G

“SIMPLY GLORIOUS….THE FEEL-FABULOUS FILM OF THE  YEAR!” –Daily Mail

A sprightly and unabashed adaptation of the much-loved stage show, spinning a Mamma Mia!-style narrative around the songs of the Proclaimers. We open in an armoured vehicle travelling through Afghanistan in which the assembled sing Sky Takes the Soul – a surprisingly effective overture. From here we move to Edinburgh where our battle-worn heroes (George MacKay and Kevin Guthrie) attempt to rebuild their lives and loves, picking up the pieces of relationships with friends and family…. As for me, I shed a tear within the first 10 minutes, and spent the rest of the movie beaming like a gibbering, love-struck fool.  –The Guardian
