Film BALLERINA (LEAP!) 2017-04-09 13:00:00
Description

BALLERINA  (also known as LEAP!)

Director: Eric Summer; France/Canada, 2016, 90 min; rated G

In this lushly animated tale, 11-year-old orphan, Félicie (Elle Fanning) has one dream - to go to Paris and become a dancer. Her best friend Victor (Nat Wolff) has a dream of his own, to become a famous inventor. In a leap of faith, Victor and Félicie leave their orphanage in pursuit of their passions. “There's plenty of visual whimsy in the late-19th-century setting - the animators render a gorgeous Paris - while enthusiastic dance sequences and comic beats balance out melodrama.”—Toronto Star

Film LION 2017-04-09 15:00:00
Description

LION

Director: Garth Davis; Australia, 2016, 119 min; rated G

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

A moving performance from Dev Patel is the resilient soul of this enthralling feature debut from Garth Davis that tells the true story of Saroo Brierley and his tenacious quest to find the family from whom he was separated 25 years earlier. Tempering its sentimentality with authentic feeling, the film is a stirring contemplation of roots, identity and home. Sunny Pawar, who plays Saroo as a 5-year-old in the opening chapter, and Nicole Kidman, as Saroo's adoptive mother, give beautiful performances. –The Hollywood Reporter

“Lion is one from the heart.”Rolling Stone

“A beautifully told, uplifting story of courage and determination.” –Chicago Sun-Times

Film MOONLIGHT 2017-04-11 19:00:00
Description

MOONLIGHT

Director: Barry Jenkins, USA, 2016, 111 min; 14A

WINNER OF 3 ACADEMY AWARDS including BEST PICTURE!

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

A haunting, exquisitely made reflection on African-American masculinity, Barry Jenkins' intimate character study traces the life of a black gay man from his troubled Miami childhood to maturity. The film pulls you in to its introspective protagonist's world from the start and transfixes throughout as it observes, with uncommon poignancy, his roughly two-decade path to find a definitive answer to the question, "Who am I?" Three remarkable actors play the main figure at different ages: Alex Hibbert as a young boy, Ashton Sanders as a teen and Trevante Rhodes as an adult. –The Hollywood Reporter

98% on ROTTEN TOMATOES!

“EXCELLENT!” –The Globe and Mail

“IT’S SO GOOD IT MAY RESTORE YOUR FAITH IN CINEMA.” –Toronto Sun

Film A MAN CALLED OVE 2017-04-12 19:00:00
Description

A MAN CALLED OVE

Director: Hannes Holm; Sweden, 2016, 116 min; Swedish with subtitles; PG

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

ONE OF THE BIGGEST SWEDISH BOX OFFICE HITS OF ALL TIME!

A touching comic crowd-pleaser that may call for a tissue or two by the end, A Man Called Ove is an irresistible adaptation of Fredrik Backman’s bestselling novel. It’s a heartwarming tale about a stubborn, short-tempered man with steadfast beliefs, strict routines and the feeling that everyone around him is an idiot—and no reticence about telling them so. After new neighbours accidentally run over his mailbox, the cantankerous old git’s solitary world is shaken in ways he would never have imagined…

The action unfolds both in the present and in the past. Ultimately, it’s a friendship with the new neighbours——that gives Ove a new lease on life… Holm makes poignantly clear that being needed is an essential human desire, and life is so much sweeter when shared with others. –Variety

“A MORBIDLY FUNNY AND MOVING SUCCESS!” –RogerEbert.com

“IT’S HARD TO RESIST THE JOY OF THE FILM, the unbridled heart, and Ove’s tremendous, hilarious hatred for all the idiots of the world.” –The Playlist

Theatre Phoenix Theatre: A Queer Trial 2017-04-13 18:00:00
Description

\In 1860, two successive Victoria juries effectively acquitted an openly gay man of sodomy charges, the first jury preferring to spend a night in jail themselves sooner than agree on a guilty verdict. Written by Theatre professor Jennifer Wise, this production is a culmination of THEA 311, a course about creating site-specific theatre, and is directed by UVic theatre alumnus Matthew Payne, the Artistic Producer of Theatre SKAM. Join UVic theatre students as they musically and dramatically reenact this surprisingly inspiring event from Victoria’s early colonial history—on the very site where it occurred. Please arrive early and meet in Bastion Square near the entrance of the former BC Maritime Museum. Space is limited.

Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-04-13 10:00
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.

Rock the Salish Sea Tour 2017

Film A MAN CALLED OVE 2017-04-13 19:00:00
Description

A MAN CALLED OVE

Director: Hannes Holm; Sweden, 2016, 116 min; Swedish with subtitles; PG

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

ONE OF THE BIGGEST SWEDISH BOX OFFICE HITS OF ALL TIME!

A touching comic crowd-pleaser that may call for a tissue or two by the end, A Man Called Ove is an irresistible adaptation of Fredrik Backman’s bestselling novel. It’s a heartwarming tale about a stubborn, short-tempered man with steadfast beliefs, strict routines and the feeling that everyone around him is an idiot—and no reticence about telling them so. After new neighbours accidentally run over his mailbox, the cantankerous old git’s solitary world is shaken in ways he would never have imagined…

The action unfolds both in the present and in the past. Ultimately, it’s a friendship with the new neighbours——that gives Ove a new lease on life… Holm makes poignantly clear that being needed is an essential human desire, and life is so much sweeter when shared with others. –Variety

“A MORBIDLY FUNNY AND MOVING SUCCESS!” –RogerEbert.com

“IT’S HARD TO RESIST THE JOY OF THE FILM, the unbridled heart, and Ove’s tremendous, hilarious hatred for all the idiots of the world.” –The Playlist

Film KEDI 2017-04-14 19:00:00
Description

KEDI

Director: Ceyda Torun; Turkey, 2016, 79 min; Turkish with subtitles; rated G

“CAT PEOPLE: THIS ONE’S FOR YOU!” –indieWire

Kedi’ will automatically find devout fans among anyone who delights at all things feline. Shot throughout the streets of Istanbul, the movie isolates the profound relationship between man and cat by exploring it across several adorable cases. The result is at once hypnotic and charming. Locals are interviewed about their bonds with the creatures, but the cats themselves take center stage, transforming the experience into a spiritual meditation on their significance to modern civilization. --indieWire

“A JOYOUS LITTLE SLICE OF CINEMA.” –The Film Stage

 “DELIGHTFUL AND VISUALLY SPLENDID.” –Time

 

A cat’s-eye view of the world that showcases both the warm-hearted people of this ancient Turkish city and the seamless integration of its felines into everyday life. –Toronto Star
