SCREENINGS

 

Movie Monday

 

6:30 pm Monday 3 Dec 2012

Prince of Broadway, 2008, 100 min 

A find from a filmmaker I met at VIFF, Prince of Broadway is the story of Lucky and Levon, two men whose lives converge in the underbelly of New York’s wholesale fashion district. Lucky, a street smart illegal immigrant from Ghana, makes ends meet by soliciting shoppers on the street with knock-off brand merchandise. Levon, an Armenian-Lebanese immigrant, operates an illegal storefront with a concealed back room where counterfeit goods are showcased to interested shoppers. Lucky’s world is suddenly turned upside down when a child is thrust into his life by a past girlfriend who insists the toddler is his son. It’s part comedy, part drama, very authentic, and made with passion on an indie budget. We’ll show a ‘making of’ doc that shows how this terrific film was birthed. R language review ~ more

 

His new, impressive film, Starlet, with a debut staring roll by Papa Hemmingway’s granddaughter Gree, screened at VIFF in September.

cast: Prince Adu, Karren Karagulian, Aiden Noesi, Keyali Mayaga, Kat Sanchez

6:30 pm Monday 10 Dec 2012

Smokin’ Fish Movie, 81 min, 2011

 

Cory Mann is a quirky Tlingit businessman hustling to make a dollar in Juneau Alaska. He gets hungry for smoked salmon, nostalgic for his childhood, and decides to spend a summer smoking fish at his family’s traditional fish camp. The unusual story of his life and the untold history of his people interweave with the process of preparing traditional food as he struggles to pay his bills, keep the IRS off his back, and keep his business afloat. By turns tragic, bizarre, or just plain ridiculous, Smokin’ Fish, tells the story of one man’s attempts to navigate the messy zone of collision between the modern world and an ancient culture. Pg13 review ~ more.

 

Hopefully Cory Mann will be with us to present his story.

 

Plus short: Uninterrupted ( 4 min ) Nettie Wild’s short about our Adams salmon run.

 

Movies are shown on a 12′ screen in the Eric Martin Pavilion in the 1900 block of Fort St. Admission by donation! Pop & popcorn at ridiculously low prices. See: http://islandnet.com/mm/

How To Die In Oregon, 107 min, 2011

In 1994, Oregon became the first state to legalize physician-assisted suicide. As a result, any individual whom two physicians diagnose as having less than six months to live can lawfully request a fatal dose of barbiturate to end his or her life. Since 1994, more than 500 Oregonians have taken their mortality into their own hands. In How to Die in Oregon, filmmaker Peter Richardson gently enters the lives of the terminally ill as they consider whether – and when – to end their lives by lethal overdose. Richardson examines both sides of this complex, emotionally charged issue. What emerges is a life-affirming, staggeringly powerful portrait of what it means to die with dignity. Pg13 more ~ director statement ~ Interview on CBC’s Q with Jian Ghomeshi.

Galina Coffey-Lewis will be joining us for the post-film discussion. She is a retired health professional, a volunteer with Dying With Dignity, and very well informed about recent developments and legislation in various jurisdictions world wide.

We Were Here, 90 min, 2011

A deep and reflective look at the arrival and impact of AIDS in San Francisco and how individuals rose to the occasion during the first years of this unimaginable crisis. “Absolutely electrifying. I wept, sure, but mostly from relief that this story has finally been told with all its dimensions intact: the panic, the betrayals, the brave humor, the enormity of what we lost – yet, ultimately, affirmed for the ages. It’s a love story about the resilience of our tribe.” Armistead Maupin Pg13 trailer.

As part of this year’s AIDS Awareness Week which begins on Monday November 26th – a panel of speakers for Q&A after the screening. – collaborating with AIDS Vancouver Island.

*********************************************************

1. Notice about MediaNet’s Equipment and Key Rates

 

Equipment

 

At MediaNet there are two posted rates for equipment. The Artist rate is for your independent projects. There is also what has been called a “non profit” rate. Generally is it double the Artist rate.   There was also a suggested “commercial rate” that was based on a comparison of commercially available rates, but still only for member use when engaged by a full fledged  commercial enterprise.

 

The board has clarified and simplified the rates. In the future, there will only be two rates.

 

The Artist rate applies to your personal projects. You must be in full artistic control of the project and not employed or answerable to a client or outside interest. 

 

The Non Artist rate is designed for members who use the equipment for commercial, small business or employment purposes. There are some simple questions you can ask yourself to clarify which rate applies to your project. Are you being paid? If so, the Non Artist Rate applies. Do you have a client? If so, the Non Artist Rate applies. Are you using this for a profit making enterprise such as a small business, your own or someone else’s. If so, the Non Artist Rate applies. If you are working for a non profit or other interest you should factor the Non Artist Rates into your budget.

SCREENINGS

 

Movie Monday

 

6:30 pm Monday 5 Nov 2012

Nothing But a Man, 92min., 1964

 

 

A very special film written and produced by Michael Roemer and Robert M. Young (the maker of William Kurelek’s The Maze documentary that we featured recently)

 

“From the era when American films almost never put black characters at the center of a movie, Nothing but a Man stands like a beacon of intelligence and sympathy. It was shot in 1964 at the height of the Civil Rights movement by two Jewish white men, director Michael Roemer and cinematographer Robert M. Young, who wrote the script after traveling through the South and immersing themselves in African American life. Ivan Dixon plays a railroad worker who settles down to marry a preacher’s daughter (jazz singer Abbey Lincoln), only to find that the system is rigged against him. The film is not condescending or idealizing in its approach; some of the problems of the characters are outside the reality of racism. Aside from its status as a landmark social-issue film, it is good to recognize, 40 years on, what a terrific piece of filmmaking this is, with fine acting, lucid dialogue, and a fresh feeling for everyday domestic life.” –Robert Horton Pg13

 

We’ll include an extra by the senior filmmakers looking back 40 years on this groundbreaking project.

6:30 pm Monday 12 Nov 2012

Edwin Boyd: Citizen Gangster, 105 min, 2011

 

The story of notorious Canadian bank robber Edwin Boyd, beginning with his return from duty in the Second World War. Dismayed by public indifference toward veterans, humiliated by his inability to provide for his children and his wife Doreen , and seeing only disappointment in the face of his policeman father, Eddie resorts to unlawful activity. What starts as small time bank robberies, evolves over time—and with experience—into a career that turns Boyd into postwar Toronto’s public enemy number one. Electric performances by Scott Speedman as Boyd and Kevin Durand his accomplice. A really riveting film based on real life events. more.

 

The film took home the TIFF prize for best first Canadian feature 2011 R

 

There’s a solid Victoria connection to this story: Boyd settled here and became a model citizen!

cast: Scott Speedman, Kelly Reilly, Kevin Durand, Joseph Cross,Brendan Fletcher

http://playagainfilm.com/gallery/trailers/

 

One generation from now most people in the U.S. will have spent more time in the virtual world than in nature.

But what are we missing when we are behind screens? And how will this impact our children, our society, and eventually, our planet? This moving and humorous documentary follows six teenagers who, like the “average American child,” spend five to fifteen hours a day behind screens. PLAY AGAIN unplugs these teens and takes them on their first wilderness adventure.

 

As a new component of OPEN CINEMA’s events, the discussion will be live-streemed to OPEN CINEMA’s website on our live page

http://www.opencinema.ca/live/ and there will be a moderated Twitter chat, which can be followed by following #OCchat

 

Our website also has a brand new look, thanks to Pink Sheep Media! (www.PinkSheepMedia.ca).

 

Hope to see you at the event!

5. AROUND TOWN

 

Antimatter Film Festival

October 12 to 20, 2012  |  Victoria, BC, Canada

 

Antimatter is celebrating 15 years of subversive cinema with a new venue, more democratic price structure, and the great programming audiences have come to expect from this long-running festival. From October 12 to 20, festival-goers will be treated to performances, installations and screenings of feature-length and short films from as far away as Iran, Finland and Japan.

 

This year’s nightly screening series will take place at The Vic Theatre, a 200-plus-seat venue with a 24-foot screen, great sightlines and top-notch projection and sound. Each screening will have pay-what-you-can price structure, allowing more cinema-lovers to enjoy the diverse offerings at Antimatter. Cinephiles will find environmentalism, music, documentary, found footage, analogue techniques, collage and much more in this year’s Antimatter program, which runs the gamut from poignant to provocative.

 

In tandem with Antimatter’s screenings are two installations. Salas… (cartel series), which will be found in the lobby of The Vic Theatre, is an excerpt from Julio Orozco’s “Movie Houses of the Past, Projections in the Future,” wherein the Tijuana native used his photos of the city’s disappearing cinemas to create fictional film posters. October 13 to 27 at Deluge Contemporary Art is Methods for Composing Random Compositions, where Adán De La Garza uses non-musical objects to elicit 17 different sound performances; De La Garza will be on hand to present the video pieces and discuss his work. Also at Deluge is The Ride, a short film about Vienna’s “Prater,” an urban amusement park.

 

Antimatter is also excited to be hosting Home Movie Day on October 20, where there will be a screening of Tourist Season, a collection of vintage films of Victoria from the 1930s through the 1980s—and if you have your own Victoria home movies you’d like to share, be sure to get in touch.

 

Screenings are a $5–$8 suggested donation; installations are free. Full schedule and program guide available at locations across Greater Victoria, or online at http://www.antimatter.ws

Movie Monday

 

6:30 pm Monday 15 Oct 2012

Dinosaur Maker – an evening with Bill Maylone, approximately 2 hours

This is more a talk illustrated with short films and clips.

 

 

Inspired by the fantastic films of Ray Harryhausen, and with a professional career that started in Victoria in the mid-1970s, Bill Maylone ended up directing or creating animated movies and sequences for the likes of Adbusters, the National Film Board, NOVA, the CBC, and Will Vinton Studios.

 

In the days before computer animation, dinosaurs and other fantastic creatures were brought to life most effectively using the painstaking hands-on technique of stop-motion animation. He came to realize that this odd profession could actually contribute to changing the world.

Maylone, now a Mayne Island resident, will share his stories, images, movies, and models and talk about the challenges, successes, and frustrations involved in being driven by the unusual, but – fortunately – constructive obsession of making inanimate objects appear to be alive. Pg with clips of Bill’s own work and some classic Harryhausen work too. youtube video.

Not an easy watch, revealing of realities that lead to homelessness, insights into dysfunctional family dynamics. Based a real life memoir by son Nick Flynn. Powerful cinema experience and a great fit for MM! Both De Niro and Dano keep it real. R suggestive scenes, drug use, language. official site.

4. AROUND TOWN

 

SOUNDS IN A ROOM #16

Friday September 28, 2012

The Slide Room Gallery 2549 Quadra Street, Victoria

7:30pm-9:00pm

 

On September 28, 2012, SOUNDS IN A ROOM, Victoria’s only monthly program of experimental new music, will present a solo performance by Lance Austin Olsen and the second in our RE_MOTE series.

 

Lance Austin Olsen is already well-known as one of Victoria’s premier contemporary painters but, since 2001, he has been simultaneously developing a considerable body of work in sound installation and performance. His solo and collaborative recordings have won international praise for their distinct style, featuring Olsen attacking a small trainer guitar with a variety of found objects. Olsen approaches his improvised performances in the same manner as his painting – unpredictable gestures framed by open space.

 

Also part of the evening will be the second in our RE_MOTE series, which invites established contemporary musicians from various parts of the world to provide us with a 15min improvisation documented on video. These documents are paired together and projected simultaneously to create a new composition built from chance. The artists names remain a secret until the night of the projection.

 

Join us for an exciting evening of concerts and discussion! Admission is free.

Monsieur Lazhar, 94 min, 2011

 

 

A French Canadian film about a teacher who steps in after a previous teacher killed herself during recess at an elementary school. The kids know what happened but no one is talking about it in open terms. The Algerian replacement teacher has his own secret and past trauma, and sees a need to address the children’s emotional needs gently but more directly. It’s nicely done, very touching. Multiple award winner and Canada’s Oscar contender.

Thanksgiving

 

 

Set in Hawaii, The Descendants is a sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic journey for Matt King (George Clooney) an indifferent husband and father of two girls, who is forced to re-examine his past and embrace his future when his wife suffers a boating accident off of Waikiki. He now has to step up to parenting a couple of daughters he doesn’t really know, a beset with challenges of deciding the future of a large piece of family land and a surprising, unwelcome revelation. “A thoroughly rewarding assembled-for-adults dramedy that benefits immensely from both its island locale and one of George Clooney’s finest performances.” R trailer

6:30 pm Monday 24 Sep 2012

Rainman, 133 min, 1988

 

This classic film is well worth a revival on our big screen. Made 24 years ago when we were all much younger, when Tom Cruise was just a sharp young actor, and Dustin Hoffman was taking real chances as a character actor and most of us knew little about autism. Charlie, a sharp, egotistical yuppie finds his father has left him only a car and a few rose bushes while the expected estate has gone to a brother he didn’t know existed. It’s a solid, entertaining film with lots to talk about. R
