Film MAUDIE 2017-05-28 16:30:00
Description

MAUDIE

Director: Aisling Walsh; Canada/Ireland, 2016, 112 min; PG

WINNER! PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD –Vancouver International Film Festival

The life of legendary Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis is painted in exquisite detail in this impeccably acted, incredibly affecting biopic. At the beating heart of Aisling Walsh’s film is Sally Hawkins (beloved for her performances in Happy-Go-Lucky and Made in Dagenham), who not only captures the contorted physicality of this self-taught painter, who contended with rheumatoid arthritis, but also exudes the creative spirit raging within her.

The film’s backdrop is undeniably cinematic: the rugged beauty and expansive vistas of 1930s Nova Scotia. Likewise, its primary setting is unspeakably intimate: the comically tiny one-room house that Maud shares with misanthropic fish peddler Everett (Ethan Hawke), initially as his housekeeper but soon as his wife—albeit still placing behind his dogs and chickens in terms of his favoured tenants. Undaunted, she’s inspired by the natural splendour surrounding their hovel to take up a paint brush.

Operating with no preconceptions of what “art” should be, her charmingly unsophisticated, uniquely one-dimensional paintings strike a chord with tastemakers and soon she’s a leading figure in the Naïve Art movement. Her exuberance proves infectious, ensuring that when she intones "I was loved" near the film’s end, we each count ourselves amongst those who adored her. –Vancouver International Film Festival

“Sally Hawkins delivers an unforgettable performance.”Georgia Straight

“Hawkins' performance splendidly carries the day.”The Hollywood Reporter

Film TAMPOPO 2017-05-29 19:00:00
Description

TAMPOPO

Director: Juzo Itami, Japan, 1985, 115 min; Japanese with subtitles; PG

100% ON ROTTEN TOMATOES!

Juzo Itami’s rapturous “ramen western” returns to Canadian screens for the first time in decades, in a new 4K restoration. The tale of an enigmatic band of ramen ronin who guide the widow of a noodle shop owner on her quest for the perfect recipe, ‘Tampopo’ serves up a savory broth of culinary adventure seasoned with offbeat comedy sketches and the erotic exploits of a gastronome gangster. Sweet, sexy, surreal, and mouthwatering, ‘Tampopo’ remains one of the most delectable examples of food on film. –Films We Like

“This understated farce has its own brand of dippy enchantment. It's about noodles, pleasure, and the movies.” –Pauline Kael

“One of those utterly original movies that seems to exist in no known category. –Roger Ebert

Theatre Born Yesterday 2017-05-30 All Day
Description

A sharp political satire as relevant today as when it debuted on Broadway in 1946, Blue Bridge Repertory presents Born Yesterday, the American classic made famous by the 1950 film version starring Judy Holliday, William Holden and Broderick Crawford. When an uncouth, remorseless junk dealer arrives in Washington DC with his showgirl mistress by his side, his mission is to buy a congressman. But when the showgirl’s ignorance and audacity threatens his business dealings, he hires a journalist to educate her. It turns out she has an incredible natural intelligence, which she uses to turn the tables on the under–the–table proceedings. Theatre alumna and playwright Janet Munsil directs this latest Blue Bridge production, which features an alumni-heavy cast and crew, with cast members including Michael Armstrong (Writing MFA and sessional instructor), Jonathan Mason, Nick Guerreiro, Chase Hiebert, Caitlin Holm, Tim Machin, Danielle Janess and former Theatre student Jacob Richmond, plus lighting by professor emeritus Giles Hogya, set by Barb Clerihue, costumes by Graham McMonagle, and sound by Carolyn Moon.

Lecture/Seminar Lorna Crozier book launch 2017-05-30 19:30:00
Description

In her newest collection, What the Soul Doesn't Want, retired Writing professor Lorna Crozier describes the passage of time in the way that only she can. Her arresting, edgy poems about aging and grief are surprising and invigorating: a defiant balm. At the same time, she revels in the quirkiness and whimsy of the natural world: the vision of a fly, the naming of an eggplant, and a woman who—not unhappily—finds that cockroaches are drawn to her.

Alumni "A Typology of Direct Action at Sea" with Teale Phelps Bondaroff 2017-05-31 10:30:00
Description

WHEN: May 31st, 2017
TIME: 10:30am - noon
WHERE: Sedgewick C168

DETAILS:

Non-governmental organizations, community groups, and other civil society non-state actors have traditionally been seen as relying on lobbying, advocating or protesting to further marine conservation aims. However an increasing number of actors have begun to diversify their repertoires to include direct action. Activists are known to engage in ecosystem restoration, however increasingly we see them behaving like states; engaging in surveillance, monitoring and even the direct enforcement of maritime (conversation) laws and regulations. These variations of direct action eschew traditional moral framing in favour of legal framing, presenting environmentally harmful activity as criminal activity. This talk explores the emerging diversity of direct action strategies employed by non-state actors in combating fish crime. It begins to present a typology of these strategies, establishing overlapping categories, which include deterrence, compellence and service provision. 

Teale Phelps Bondaroff is an international relations scholar with a PhD in politics and international studies from the University of Cambridge. He completed BAs in political science and international relations from the University of Calgary. His academic research focuses on the strategy of non-state actors, specifically the strategic use of international law by conservation non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

Lecture/Seminar Strong Sentences and Self Editing 2017-05-31 14:00:00
Description

Choose Your Own Self-Editing Adventure: Common Errors and How to Avoid Them!

Less is more. This class will teach you how to write more concisely and avoid redundancy and wordiness, so that you can finish within your word limit and write with impact and purpose. We will also explore the concepts of sentence “weight,” plain language principles, and good sentence construction. Learn the differences between the four sentence types, and build a varied piece of writing that shows connections between ideas in the best way possible.

In this workshop, you’ll also consider common errors made by both native and non-native English speakers, and begin to develop a self-editing checklist that you can use to improve your own writing. Bring a piece of your unpolished writing with you and get feedback on items to add to your list.

Lecture/Seminar Lecture Notes for Busy Students 2017-06-01 10:00:00
Description

Busy students sometimes make poor use of posted lecture notes. Appropriate ‘helper’ slides, icons and callouts can reduce confusion and stress come study time, especially for students with overwhelming course loads.  In this workshop, we will walk through techniques developed for a required course in engineering, where they quickly led to large improvements in student understanding and course satisfaction. We will also look at ways to keep the addition of these tools quick and easy for the instructor, and how to apply the methods in a qualitative course.

Origin Stories

First Nations Prints and Carvings

Guest curated by Jackson McDermott (Dene/Cree) with Gillian Booth and Katie Hughes.

As Canada celebrates 150 years since Confederation, the Legacy Art Galleries respectfully acknowledges a much longer history by presenting First Nations narratives that move beyond limited settler versions of history. Through prints and carvings chosen by guest curator, Jackson McDermott (Dene/Cree) from the Fort Nelson First Nation, the exhibition explores centuries-old stories that continue to live in the people, communities, nations and lands of this place.
