Film "The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared" 2014-10-21 19:00:00
Description

THE 100-YEAR-OLD MAN WHO CLIMED OUT OF THE WINDOW AND DISAPPEARED
Director: Felix Herngren 
Sweden, 2013, 114 min; Swedish with subtitles

There's more than a sprinkling of magic in this beautifully conceived and executed tale about a centenarian (Robert Gustafsson) who likes blowing up things. Adapted from Jonas Jonasson's best selling novel, director Felix Herngren has crafted a clever Swedish black comedy that feels as though it is in perpetual motion. It is full of surprises and if you thought that a film whose central character is 100 years old might be dull and staid, think again. The character is simply a conduit with whom we fly on a madcap carpet ride that incorporates historic events and icons from the past. This uplifting, crowd pleasing entertainment is a road movie, a character study, a wild adventure and black comedy all rolled into one. It's a helluva ride.—Urban Cinephile

Lecture/Seminar Cafe Scientifique-Brain Tumours by Dr. John Paul McGhie 2014-10-21 18:30:00
Description

Sometimes science at a university happens in a way that is isolated from the general public. Café Scientifique is an informal seminar series hosted by the Centre for Biomedical Research that provides insight into health-related issues and general science topics of popular interest to the general public. These seminars are opportunities for the public to meet local researchers and discuss some of the most interesting and sometimes contentious research currently underway in Canada.
