Programmer's Blurb November 2012

By : metro

Hi everyone,

You've probably noticed that we have a brand new print program design. Thanks to a new partnership with Vue Weekly, we are now able to present the program in full colour. (In upcoming issues, the cover images will be from films that are in colour, too!)

For the second year now, we’re proud to be bringing in the Festival of New Spanish Cinema, with five engaging and innovative films from Spain. Please join us for a reception on opening night after the screening.

We’re bringing in a new 35mm print of the timeless classic To Kill A Mockingbird as part of Universal’s 100th year celebration. We’re also partnering with two new groups this month: On Spec Magazine are helping us present a pair of Godzilla films, curated by Allan Mulholland. And the Wirth Institute at the U of A are helping us bring in two films inspired by Austrian writer Arthur Schnitzler: Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut and La Ronde by Max Ophüls.

We’re screening the work of some local filmmakers this month, including Rosie Dransfeld’s documentary Who Cares? about Edmonton’s sex trade workers; and Eva Colmer’s Granny Baby, about a boy’s experience with a senior citizen in a hospital waiting room.

We’re also presenting a number of fine documentaries, including We are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists, chronicling the culture and activities of the Anonymous collective; Bill W., about the life and work of Alcoholics Anonymous founder William G. Wilson; and David Lavallee’s in-depth look at the Alberta tarsands, White Water, Black Gold.
