Film "GLORIA" 2014-04-17 19:00:00
Description

GLORIA

Director: Sebastián Lelio  
Chile, 2013, 110 min; Spanish with subtitles; 14A

“Are you always this happy?” Rodolfo asks Gloria, shortly after catching her eye. They are at a nightclub where middle-aged residents of Santiago, Chile, dance and flirt, and where Gloria, in her 50s and long divorced, occasionally goes to attract the attention of a silver-haired Romeo. No, she says, sometimes in the mornings she is sad, and in the afternoons, too.

The great accomplishment of “Gloria,” the Chilean writer-director Sebastián Lelio’s astute, unpretentious and thrillingly humane new film, is that it acknowledges both sides of its heroine’s temperament without judgment or sentimentality. Gloria, played with dignity and gusto by Paulina García, is too complicated for such treatment.

Her life is a familiar jumble of pleasures and frustrations, her personality a weave of moods, foibles and admirable traits. She sometimes drinks too much, and hovers needily around her two grown children. She endures a dull office job. She is immune to self-pity and not averse to emotional risk.

One of the delights of “Gloria” is that its richly detailed realism is fuel for thought: about Chile, about men and women, about the cycles of family life. But Mr. Lelio is interested, above all, in showing Gloria exactly as she is, which is beautiful.

--The New York Times

One of the most enjoyable movies to come along in a while.” --Los Angeles Times

“It elevates your mood to such a point that you wish you could hug the screen out of sheer joy and recognition!”  –RogerEbert.com

Lecture/Seminar Challenging the Culture of Substance Use 2014-04-17 12:00:00
Description

When developing strategies to address the harms related to substance use, we may be tempted to focus on the drugs. What they look like, what they do in the body, and what health consequences they might have. But this drug-centric approach leaves out some of the most important factors. Drug use is a cultural phenomenon, and any attempt to influence the outcomes needs to examine the cultural elements.


If culture is “the whole context of understanding that we unwittingly carry over unchallenged,” how can we change culture? In this presentation, we will examine how the culture of post-secondary institutions influences the use of alcohol and other drugs and how that impacts on individuals and the community. We will engage in discussion about ways to measure culture and ways to influence the cultures in which we participate.
