Film CALL OF THE FOREST 2017-04-30 15:00:00
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.

Music MENDELSSOHN SYMPHONY NO. 3 2017-04-30 14:30:00
Description

Greater Victoria Youth Orchestra

Yariv Aloni, Music Director & Conductor

MENDELSSOHN Symphony No. 3 (Scottish)

SMETANAM á Vlast: Vysehrad

FALLA The Three-Cornered Hat: Suite No. 2

The GVYO concludes its Season of Symphonies with music to delight the senses. Mendelssohn began his third symphony during a visit to Scotland, where he drew inspiration from Holyrood, a misty ruin where Mary, Queen of Scots had once been crowned queen. Smetana pays homage to his Czech homeland with the symphonic poem, Vysehrad (The High Castle), inspired by an historic and mysterious site above Prague. Falla’s Three Cornered Hat, written for a Diaghilev ballet, is a comedic blend of music and dance from Spain. Olé!

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 WEIRDOS 2017-05-01 19:00:00
Description

WEIRDOS

Director: Bruce McDonald; Canada, 2016, 85 min; PG

Cast: Dylan Authors, Julia Sarah Stone and Molly Parker.

A double Canadian Screen Awards winner — Best Supporting Actress for Molly Parker and Best Original Screenplay for Daniel MacIvor — Weirdos is one of Bruce McDonald’s sweetest films.

Filmed in lustrous B & W, it’s a coming-of-age road movie set in 1976. Questing teenager Kit (Dylan Authors) and his BFF Alice (Julia Sarah Stone) leave their tiny Nova Scotia town for adventure in the “big” city of Sydney. What could go wrong for a couple of kids who listen to Canrock — the soundtrack is like a ’70s sampler pack — and who just wanna have fun?

Plenty, since one of them is unsure of his sexual identity, the other doubts her relationship status and both are wondering how Kit’s divorced mom (Molly Parker) will welcome their unheralded arrival.

“Anything’s possible” observes a hovering magic-realist figure, an Andy Warhol lookalike amusingly played by Rhys Bevan-John. He calls himself Kit’s “spirit animal” and offers a defining sentiment: “We’re all weirdos. That’s what makes us beautiful.” –Toronto Star

“A lovely, low-key memory piece, vibrant with the awkward grace of adolescence.”The Hollywood Reporter

“What's not to love about Canuck hipster Bruce McDonald's return to a genre of which he's a master -- the indie road movie with a distinctly Canadian flavour and endearingly peculiar characters?”Victoria Times-Colonist

“A coming-of-age story for a country. McDonald waves a freak flag. It has a leaf.” -–The Globe and Mail

Description

FRANTZ

Director: François Ozon; France/Germany, 2016,114 min; French/German with subtitles; PG

Set in Germany and France in the immediate aftermath of the First World War, ‘Frantz’ recalls the mourning period as seen through the eyes of the war's "lost generation": Anna (Paula Beer), a bereft young German woman whose fiancé, Frantz, was killed during trench warfare, and Adrien (Pierre Niney), a French veteran of the war who shows up mysteriously in her town, placing flowers on Frantz's grave.

Adrien's presence is met with resistance by the small community, yet Anna gradually gets closer to the handsome and melancholy young man….

It's a rare beauty, this odd-duck of a period piece from the great French director François Ozon.”Rolling Stone

Lecture/Seminar People in Place: The Worldview We Need 2017-05-03 19:30:00
Description

John Ralston Saul: Renowned essayist visits Victoria for public talk on ethnoecology and resurgence

Indigenous knowledge, resurgence and the importance of place are themes that will be touched upon by award-winning essayist and novelist John Ralston Saul on May 3 at the University of Victoria in his talk, “People in Place: The Worldview We Need.”

Ralston Saul’s works have been translated into 28 languages in 37 countries. The latest, The Comeback (Le Grand Retour), is an examination of the resurgence to power of Indigenous peoples in Canada.

This keynote address is part of the four-day Indigenous Peoples' Land Rights and the Roles of Ethnoecology and Ethnobotany Symposium at UVic (now full to capacity), sponsored by the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation and hosted by UVic’s School of Environmental Studies. The symposium is one of four UVic signature series events to mark Canada’s 150th anniversary.

UVic ethnobotanist and ethnoecologist Nancy Turner, who has devoted her career to understanding and communicating the crucial role that plants play in Indigenous cultures and languages, is leading the symposium as part of her 2016 Pierre Elliott Trudeau Fellowship. She played a key role in bringing Ralston Saul to Victoria. (Read more on Turner’s legacy)

 

What: “People in Place: The Worldview We Need” with John Ralston Saul

When: Wednesday, May 3 from 7:30 to 9 p.m.

Where: Room A144 (David Lam Auditorium), MacLaurin Building, UVic

MAY 5 & 6   7:00 & 9:10

GET OUT

Director: Jordan Peele; USA, 2017, 104 min; 14A   Cast: Daniel Kaluuya, Alison Williams, Bradley Whitford, Catherine Keener

Funny, scary, and thought-provoking, Get Out seamlessly weaves its trenchant social critiques into a brilliantly effective and entertaining horror/comedy thrill ride. 99% --Rotten Tomatoes

“The satirical horror movie we've been waiting for, a mash-up of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? and The Stepford Wives that's more fun than either and more illuminating, too.” New York Magazine

“A masterpiece of subversion.”Toronto Sun

“This one really should be seen with a crowd.” Chicago Tribune

“Truly, madly, mercilessly entertaining, even when it makes you want to jump out of your skin….More a very smart satire with scares, than a full-on horror movie.” --NPR

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.

GET OUT

Director: Jordan Peele; USA, 2017, 104 min; 14A   Cast: Daniel Kaluuya, Alison Williams, Bradley Whitford, Catherine Keener

Funny, scary, and thought-provoking, Get Out seamlessly weaves its trenchant social critiques into a brilliantly effective and entertaining horror/comedy thrill ride. 99% --Rotten Tomatoes

“The satirical horror movie we've been waiting for, a mash-up of Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? and The Stepford Wives that's more fun than either and more illuminating, too.” New York Magazine

“A masterpiece of subversion.”Toronto Sun

“This one really should be seen with a crowd.” Chicago Tribune

“Truly, madly, mercilessly entertaining, even when it makes you want to jump out of your skin….More a very smart satire with scares, than a full-on horror movie.” --NPR
