Film WINDOW HORSES (The Poetic Persian Epiphany of Rosie Ming) 2017-04-23 13:00:00
Description

WINDOW HORSES (The Poetic Persian Epiphany of Rosie Ming)

Director: Ann Marie Fleming; Canada, 2016, 90 min; rated G

A beautifully narrated and colourfully animated story of a young girl’s journey, employs poetry, music and illustration to celebrate the value of self-discovery. After being invited to a poetry festival in Shiraz, Iran, by a mysterious figure, Rosie Ming faces challenges that ultimately lead to her self-realization. The film’s superb voice cast includes Sandra Oh, Don McKellar and Ellen Page. --VIFF

“One of Canada’s most beloved animators is back with an extraordinary tale of art, history, and family.” –Toronto International Film Festival  

“A touching tale that traces the pain, confusion and wonder of multiculturalism, immigration, cultural stereotypes and identity.”Sight & Sound

“The film provides a counterweight to our xenophobic times, proving that human beings are more alike than unalike and that poetry can be relevant across millennia.” --Variety

Yet, how did this African American artist succeed at a time when racial prejudice prevented most Blacks from entering any skilled profession?

Film NERUDA 2017-04-23 15:00:00
Description

NERUDA

Director: Pablo Larraín

Chile/Argentina/Spain, 2016, 108 min; Spanish with subtitles; PG

Pablo Larraín (No, The Club, Jackie) weaves an engrossing meta-fictional fable around the 1948 manhunt for celebrated poet and politician Pablo Neruda (Luis Gnecco), who goes underground when Chile outlaws communism and is pursued by an ambitious police inspector (Gael García Bernal) hoping to make a name for himself by capturing the famous fugitive. –Toronto International Film Festival

"A work of such cleverness and beauty, alongside such power, that it’s hard to know how to parcel out praise: script, cinematography, art direction and performances all vie for kudos and awards."Variety

“A dream of Chile, of what it was and might have been, brought to the screen by a master dreamer.”Boston Globe

“Is ‘Neruda’ a cinematic play, a poem, a biopic? In this near-perfect homage to a literary giant, it's all open to interpretation.”The Globe and Mail

Lecture/Seminar The Hidden World of Whales 2017-04-24 19:30:00
Description

MARINE NIGHT Victoria Natural History Society

Most whale behaviour is conducted underwater out of sight where they employ ‘invisible’ acoustics as their principle means of finding food, navigating, and communicating. Dr. Rianna Burnham is a post-doc in the Whale Lab at UVic who is exploring how ecology and acoustic studies can be used to ‘see’ into the lives of some of the largest animals on the planet. Bones, photographs, video, recordings, and results from cutting edge research will be used to aid the discussion.

Film CALL OF THE FOREST with Diana Beresord-Kroeger in person! 2017-04-25 19:00:00
Description

Special Event!  Diana Beresord-Kroeger will be here for a panel discussion after the 7pm show on Apr. 25 only!    Regular Cinecenta prices.

CALL OF THE FOREST: The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees

Director: Jeffrey McKay; Canada, 2016, 82 min.

“A PASSIONATE ECO-DOCUMENTARY….WILL MAKE YOU SEE TREES WITH NEW EYES.” –Winnipeg Free Press

You can almost smell the forest in this beautiful new advocacy documentary featuring the Irish/Canadian author, conservationist, and botanist Diana Beresford-Kroeger.  –Pacific Cinematheque

The film follows Diana Beresford-Kroeger as she investigates our profound biological and spiritual connection to the woodlands and explores the most beautiful forests in the Northern Hemisphere.

From the sacred sugi and cedar forests of Japan to the great boreal forest of Canada, Beresford-Kroeger relates the amazing history and legacy of these ancient forests while also explaining the science of trees and the irreplaceable roles they play in protecting and feeding the planet.

This beautifully photographed film also profiles the Engelmann Spruce and the Great Western Red Cedar from the remaining ancient coastal rainforest of Vancouver Island.

We meet some of the world’s foremost experts in reforestation and are introduced to the activism of the Anishinaabe people of Pimachiowin Aki in Manitoba and Ontario. While calling for massive, global action, the film at heart is a story of triumph, proposing that each of us can combat climate change by planting trees in our own yards and neighbourhoods.

Special Event!  Diana Beresord-Kroeger will be here for a panel discussion after the 7pm show on Apr. 25 only!    Regular Cinecenta prices.

Lecture/Seminar Watching Birds Naked 2017-04-26 19:30:00
Description

BIRDERS’ NIGHT Victoria Natural History Society

Presentation will follow announcements and a brief break.

Are birds really “bird-brains”? Do they taste “good”? Can eagles really see farther than humans? Why are most owls as blind as we are on a dark night? How does a kestrel use ultraviolet light to catch mice? Which birds smell the best? These are just some of the questions that Dr. David Bird will answer in his humourous but educational slide show on the sensory ecology of birds. Remove those beautiful coats of feathers and you’ll discover that birds have some of the most incredible physical and physiological adaptations to keep them in tune with their environment and with each other. Once you’ve heard Dr. Bird’s talk, you’ll never look at birds in the same way again.

Film The Right to Remain 2017-04-27 15:00:00
Description

The Right to Remain: Film screening and Q&A with filmmaker Greg Masuda

27 April - 3:00pm
Cinecenta

Landscapes of Injustice is pleased to invite members of the general public and the Japanese-Canadian community to join us for a screening of Greg Masuda’s film “The Right to Remain,” followed by a Q & A session with the director. 

The Right To Remain, a CBC documentary, looks at Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside residents and the fight to save the community from development. Started as an idea five years ago, Greg Masuda accumulated over 300 hours of footage. He says “The Right to Remain is a culmination of my entire career as a filmmaker. As a Japanese Canadian, I could not resist participating in the advocacy for the Downtown Eastside community as it looked down the barrel of the real estate industry in the second most expensive city in the world.” 

Once known as ‘Japantown,’ this area was home to thousands of Japanese Canadians before World War II.

Description

We know Grafton Tyler Brown (1841-1918) was one of the first professional landscape artists to work in the Pacific Northwest. His few regional paintings that survive offer vivid windows into the world of 1880s Victoria and British Columbia. Yet, how did this African American artist succeed at a time when racial prejudice prevented most Blacks from entering any skilled profession? Guest curated by Dr. John Lutz (History, UVic) with Emerald Johnstone Bedell and Caroline Riedel. Created in partnership with UVIC Legacy Art Galleries and UVIC History Department. With conservation support from the Royal BC Museum.

Film CALL OF THE FOREST 2017-04-27 19:00:00
Description

CALL OF THE FOREST: The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees

Director: Jeffrey McKay; Canada, 2016, 82 min.

“A PASSIONATE ECO-DOCUMENTARY….WILL MAKE YOU SEE TREES WITH NEW EYES.” –Winnipeg Free Press

You can almost smell the forest in this beautiful new advocacy documentary featuring the Irish/Canadian author, conservationist, and botanist Diana Beresford-Kroeger.  –Pacific Cinematheque

The film follows Diana Beresford-Kroeger as she investigates our profound biological and spiritual connection to the woodlands and explores the most beautiful forests in the Northern Hemisphere.

From the sacred sugi and cedar forests of Japan to the great boreal forest of Canada, Beresford-Kroeger relates the amazing history and legacy of these ancient forests while also explaining the science of trees and the irreplaceable roles they play in protecting and feeding the planet.

This beautifully photographed film also profiles the Engelmann Spruce and the Great Western Red Cedar from the remaining ancient coastal rainforest of Vancouver Island.

We meet some of the world’s foremost experts in reforestation and are introduced to the activism of the Anishinaabe people of Pimachiowin Aki in Manitoba and Ontario. While calling for massive, global action, the film at heart is a story of triumph, proposing that each of us can combat climate change by planting trees in our own yards and neighbourhoods.
