MAIDEN
Sep 17 @ 7:30 pm

Maiden is the story of how Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook in charter boats, became the skipper of the first ever all-female crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World in 1989. Tracy’s inspirational dream was opposed on all sides: her male competitors thought an all-women crew would never make it, the chauvinistic yachting press took bets on her failure, and potential sponsors rejected her, fearing they would die at sea and generate bad publicity. But Tracy refused to give up: she remortgaged her home and bought a secondhand boat, putting everything on the line to ensure the team made it to the start line. Although blessed with tremendous self-belief Tracy was also beset by crippling doubts and was only able to make it through with the support of her remarkable crew. With their help she went on to shock the sport world and prove that women are very much the equal of men.

UK, 2018; 93 minutes

With: Tracy Edwards

“It’s a bitter irony that tempers the sweet taste of victory. Maiden excels as a suspenseful sports tale and a record of a historic first, but its biggest strength is in its warts-and-all character study of the Maiden crew. One can’t help but feel seen, moved and empowered once the credits roll.”

XARA CHORAL THEATRE: RINGS THROUGH WATER
Sep 21 @ 7:30 pm

Rings Through Water is new creation that uses ethereal choral singing, contemporary and traditional Indigenous dance, along with powerful text and theatrical presentation, to tell three short stories about water.  

It’s a collaboration between five artists – three Indigenous and two Settlers. Their desire to overcome their own embodied prejudices, privilege, and pain is central to their artistic process and to the beautiful narratives of this show.

Depending on its form, water has the capacity to amplify sound, distort it, or mute it; how do we do the same as we navigate our relationship with this precious resource and one another? Together they speak for water, lift up the voices of its protectors, and amplify the voices of the missing and murdered  Indigenous women who have met their end in it. They also offer a reconciliation-based model for Indigenous and Settler collaboration.

ALL IS TRUE
Sep 24 @ 7:30 pm

The year is 1613, and Shakespeare is acknowledged as the greatest writer of the age. But disaster strikes when his renowned Globe Theatre burns to the ground. Devastated, Shakespeare returns to Stratford, where he must face a troubled past and a neglected family. Haunted by the death of his only son, Hamnet, he struggles to mend the broken relationship with his wife and daughters. In so doing, he is ruthlessly forced to examine his own failings as a husband and father.

Director: Kenneth Branagh

Stars: Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench, Ian McKellan

UK, 2018; 101 minutes

“Branagh leaves viewers with the impression that even the foremost genius of the English language and his family were ordinary people”.

– The Washington Post

“A quiet and meditative portrait of the artist as a retiree, this lacks incident or high stakes but has an elegiac feeling of regret and reckoning that fits its subject’s twilight years.

– Empire

THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO
Oct 8 @ 7:30 pm

Jimmie Fails dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco. Joined on his quest by his best friend Mont, Jimmie searches for belonging in a rapidly changing city that seems to have left them behind. As he struggles to reconnect with his family and reconstruct the community he longs for, his hopes blind him to the reality of his situation. A wistful odyssey populated by skaters, squatters, street preachers, playwrights, and other locals on the margins, The Last Black Man in San Francisco is a poignant and sweeping story of hometowns and how they’re made—and kept alive—by the people who love them. 

USA; 120 min

Director: Joe Talbot

Stars: Jimmie Fails, Jonathan Majors, Rob Morgan, Tichina Arnold, Danny Glover

“The Last Black Man in San Francisco is an indelibly beautiful story of love, family and loss in America from two childhood friends turned filmmakers.

THE SOUVENIR
Oct 22 @ 7:30 pm

Deeply personable and relatable, the acclaimed new drama from director Joanna Hogg (The Exhibition, Archipelago) is a semi-autobiographical account of a dysfunctional relationship between a young, ambitious film student and an older, smooth-talking man, set in 1980s west London. The film won the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize: Dramatic at Sundance in early 2019.

Julie (newcomer Honor Swinton Byrne) is finding her place as an artist, trying to shed her sheltered and privileged upbringing and immerse herself in the real world for the sake of her art. Her journey is derailed by Anthony (Tom Burke, television’s War & Peace and The Musketeers), whose charm is equal to his depravity but whom she cannot help but love — much to the dismay of her mother (played by Swinton Byrne’s real-life mother, Tilda Swinton, I Am Love , We Need to Talk About Kevin ) and her friends. Theentanglement threatens to demolish Julie’s dream of becoming a filmmaker.

Hogg sincerely captures the intensity and naiveté of a first adult love. The Souvenir is at once a period piece depicting a modern relationship long before the era of smartphones and social media, and a time capsule of our collective bad decisions and tormented relationships. A sequel is in the works, promising that life after a bad romance can continue.

DirectorJoanna Hogg

Stars: Tilda Swinton, Honor Swinton Byrne, Tom Burke

UK; 119 minutes

“The Souvenir clearly stands out as one of the year’s best films: pointedly personal art that somehow manages, in its specificity, to hit on something universal.”

—Alissa Wilkinson, VOX

THE GREAT BUSTER
Nov 5 @ 7:30 pm

THE GREAT BUSTER celebrates the life and career of one of the most influential and celebrated filmmakers and comedians, Buster Keaton, whose singular style and fertile output during the silent era created his legacy as a true cinematic visionary. Filled with stunningly restored archival Keaton films, Directed by Peter Bogdanovich.
 
Keaton’s beginnings on the vaudeville circuit are chronicled, as is the development of his trademark physical comedy and deadpan expression that earned him the lifelong moniker of “The Great Stone Face”, all of which led to his career-high years as the director, writer, producer and star of his own short films and features. Interspersed throughout are interviews with nearly two-dozen collaborators, filmmakers,
performers andfriends, including Mel Brooks, Quentin Tarantino, Werner Herzog, Dick van Dyke and Johnny Knoxville, who discuss Keaton’s influence on modern comedy and cinema itself. The loss of artistic independence and career decline that marked his later years are also covered by Bogdanovich, before he casts a close eye on Keaton’s extraordinary output from 1923 to 1929, which yielded 10 remarkable feature films (including 1926’s The General and 1928’s Steamboat Bill, Jr.) that immortalized him as one of the greatest actor-filmmakers in the history of cinema.

USA
1h 42min. 


“The Great Buster” is a solid primer on what made Keaton not just one of the most important – and funniest – comedians in the history of the movies but also one of its most visionary directors.”

PARASITE
Nov 19 @ 7:30 am
Winner of the Palme d’Or
From the director whose films rank amongst the highest grossingin South Korea comes a black family comedy (of sorts) about a wealthy Korean family in a modern-day Downton Abbey upstairs-downstairs situation.

Bong Joon-ho’s 2019 Palme d’Or winner tells the story of two families: the Kims and the Parks. The Kims are an impoverished family living in squalor, but they are resourceful. When opportunity strikes, they seize it — and never let go.

After a family friend decides to move to the United States, he encourages Ki-woo (Choi Woo-
shik, Okja) to replace him as a tutor to the daughter of the wealthy Park family. Ki-woo is unqualified for the job,but forges the credentials he needs with the help of his sister Ki-jung(Park So-dam).

One by one, each member of the Kim family finds their way into servitude to the Parks — without the Parks discovering who they really are. “Rich people are naive,” remarks the patriarch of the Kim family. The Parks are the source of survival for the Kims now. There is only one family member left to onboard: Kim matriarch Chung-Sook (Chang Hyae-jin).

The film travels through genres seamlessly to tell a story about greed and social disparity that is tragic (or maybe comedic) on a Shakespearean scale. 
 
A luxuriously watchable and satirical suspense drama.”
