Film KONELINE: our land beautiful 2016-12-04 15:00:00
Description

KONELĪNE: our land beautiful

Director: Nettie Wild, Canada, 2016, 96 minutes; PG

WINNER! BEST CANADIAN DOCUMENTARY! –Hot Docs 2016

Like last year’s doc ‘Haida Gwaii,’ Nettie Wild’s extraordinary documentary reveals the stunning landscape to the north, and charts the tension between a still relatively pristine beauty and the scars of economic development. First and foremost a rhapsodic visual response to a place and the people in it, KONELĪNE engages the senses with its ravishing aerial views and staggering vistas (as well as its superb sound design).… The film is a meditation on different cultures, different conceptions of time and value, and a glimpse of the something that will surely outlast us all. –Vancouver International Film Festival

”TRANSCENDENT, BREATHTAKING SPECTACLE!” --Maclean’s

“A FEAST FOR THE EYES….A tone poem to a beautiful land and the amazing characters who live in it. I urge you to see it.” - POV

“Award-winning director Nettie Wild crafts a breathtaking love letter—in stunning CinemaScope and surround sound—that captures the majestic beauty of the land and the unique people who live on it." --Hot Docs 2016

Film National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation 2016-12-04 13:00:00
Description

NATIONAL LAMPOON’S CHRISTMAS VACATION

Jeremiah Chechik, USA, 1989, 97 minutes; PG – coarse language

A glowingly goofy homage to family holidays. Suburban family man Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) gets all a-dither about a family holiday. He wants nothing less than a "fun, old-fashioned, family Christmas." 

For his dutiful wife (Beverly D'Angelo) and indulgent kids (Johnny Galecki, Juliette Lewis), this means that dad simply goes a little nuts: A trip to the woods for the tree, 25,000 outdoor lights, oversized presents, too many relatives — in short, Chase tries to cram too much holiday cheer into one family dwelling. 

In the spirit of anything-that-can-go-wrong-will-go-wrong, Christmas Vacation is a tightly bowed story of household delirium. --The Hollywood Reporter

“John Hughes wrote the screenplay for this silly, warm little guilty pleasure.” –Combustible Celluloid

Exhibit the absence of the origin of its likeness 2016-12-04 All Day
Description

Has this photograph been digitally altered? Did the scene it show actually occur? Since the photograph’s invention, people have been enamored by the image’s resemblance to its subject. But changes in the field of photography like digital imaging and editing have brought this into question. In the absence of the origin of its likeness, artists Laura Dutton and Arnold Koroshegyi examine these issues, using both analogue and digital technologies, to destabilize traditional readings and open up new avenues for making and looking at photographs. 
 
the absence of the origin of its likeness opens Friday, November 4 at 7:30 p.m. at Open Space. The exhibition runs until Saturday, December 10. A panel discussion will be held on Saturday, November 5 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. The speakers include Trudi Lynn Smith, Cedric Bomford, Brandon Poole, Arnold Koroshegyi, and Laura Dutton, with Lynda Gammon as the moderator. 
 
Deliberately drawing attention to the condition of the photograph’s making, Dutton and Koroshegyi’s works both speak to our denaturalized world and the artists’ urge to represent the unrepresentable. Dutton’s work starts with photographs of urbanscapes and Koroshegyi’s work begins with artificial flowers; however, through the formal, conceptual, and material possibilities of photography the end result is a form of abstraction that opens up multiple meanings.
