CARRY THE LOST
Apr 20 @ 7:30 pm

http://carrythelost.com/musichttp://

Carry The Lost is the epitome of the do-it-yourself work ethic. By fusing technical
know-how with artistic skill and several years of unassisted endeavours, the Halifax,
Nova Scotia based hard rock five-some—vocalist/guitarist Colin Tye, bassist Aidan
Zann-Roland, drummer Ken Ross, guitarist/vocalist Ave Trefry and acoustic
guitarist/vocalist Dana Perry—has built an established name, refined its sound and
accrued a loyal fan-base with nothing more than some time, touring miles and a few
excellent releases.

Yet, after a number of years as a self-backed entity, Carry The Lost is finally getting
its long awaited due. Carry The Lost is recording its full-length debut, “Alive Again”
with ECMA nominated Producer of the Year, Erien Eady-Ward at Codapop Studios.
Comprised of material written over the course of 2016-17, and influenced by the
likes of Black Stone Cherry, Seether, Stone Sour, Marshall Tucker Band, Brantley
Gilbert… Carry The Lost has been writing melodic hard rock that appeals to a broad
range of audiences.

 

Carry The Lost is continuing to take their music directly to the people with
consistent high-energy live shows. “We’ve been running parallel to everyone else,”
says Tye. “We’ve been doing our own thing, but it’s cool, because the fan-base that
we connect with is really our own fan-base. The people that are coming to our
shows are really coming to see us.”

DON’T DRESS FOR DINNER – Annapolis District Drama Group
Apr 27 @ 7:30 pm

When Jacqueline announces she is off for to visit her mother, an ideal opportunity presents itself for her husband Bernard to inveigle his chic, Parisian mistress Suzanne into their country cottage for the weekend. Why not invite along his best friend Robert too, as an alibi? And to make the arrangements easier, he’s hired a Cordon Bleu cook to rustle up the necessary gourmet delights.

The cook? Ah, that’ll be street-wise Suzette. And her jealous husband, George? Well, he’s a BIG fella! And did we mention that elegant Jacqueline is having a torrid secret affair with the rakish Robert?

Throw in a dash of Chanel and a glug or two of Cointreau – the stage is set for a hilarious, fast moving farcical romp of mistaken identities, illicit trysts, quick-thinking improvisations, bribery and seduction, as the plans for passion turn into a nuptial nightmare!

FILM STARS DON’T DIE IN LIVERPOOL
May 8 @ 7:30 pm

King’s Film Society Presents

FILM STARS DON’T DIE IN LIVERPOOL

UNITED KINGDOM, 2017
English
105 minutes

The sultry Gloria Grahame won a best supporting actress Oscar for her performance in 1952’s The Bad and the Beautiful. She appeared in films alongside Humphrey Bogart, Robert Mitchum, Lana Turner, Kirk Douglas, and a bevy of other icons. Her star blazed brightly then faded quickly, but she did not disappear. How Grahame spent her later years is the subject of this beautiful — and rare — ode to life after fame. Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool features Annette Bening as Grahame and Jamie Bell (Nicholas Nicholby, Billy Elliot), as her lover Peter Turner, a working-class English actor. Drawing on Turner’s memoir of the same name, director Paul McGuigan fashions a moving narrative that embraces the high and lows of the erstwhile Hollywood star’s time spent living in Liverpool in the 1970s.
As the two embark on their romance, we follow them from England to Los Angeles, from stage to hospital, and from laughter to tears. Unorthodox and sincere, the film is the kind of showbiz love story seldom depicted onscreen.

“There is no denying the emotional force that this film develops, and for that, we can credit talented filmmakers and two stars working at the height of their powers.”
–The Hollywood Reporter

“What an astounding actress Annette Bening is. And she’s at her very best playing Gloria Grahame, a screen siren of the 1940s and 1950s, who faced a health crisis in her final days with the help of a new love (a terrific Jamie Bell).”
– Rolling Stone

WALK WITH ME – Doc about Zen Buddhism
May 11 @ 7:00 pm
‘Walk With Me’ is meditative film about a community of Zen Buddhist monks and nuns who have dedicated their lives to mastering the art of mindfulness with their world-famous teacher Thich Nhat Hanh.

Directors & Writers: Marc J. Francis, Max Pugh

Stars: Benedict Cumberbatch, Thich Nhát Hanh, Brother Pháp De

 

 

“Slow down and breathe. This contemplative journey follows in the steps of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and is a rare insight into life within a monastic community. The sun rises. Everything is calm and still. Life is beautifully serene as Benedict Cumberbatch’s composed, meditative voice reads an extract from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals. So begins Max Pugh and Marc J Francis’ (Black Gold, LFF2006) fascinating and immersive exploration of what it means to devote one’s life to mindfulness. With unprecedented access to the famous secluded monastery of Plum Village in the South West of France, Walk With Me captures the daily routine and rituals of monks and nuns on a quest to develop a deep sense of presence. It is an insightful rumination on the pursuit of happiness, living in the present and our attachment to material things – a welcome remedy to the stresses of city life and a world in turmoil.” — Laure Bonville, London Film Festival

 —————————————-

GARDEN OF THE GODS: The Flora and Ecology of Namaqualand

Namaqualand is the semi-arid to arid region in the northwest corner of South Africa, comprising an area roughly the size of New Brunswick. Although Namaqualand has no defined political boundaries, it falls primarily within the province of Northern Cape. What makes it so remarkable botanically and striking visually is that it is the home of approximately 4000 plant species, most of which bloom within the same period of approximately one to two months (late July through early September), following the spring rains that normally begin in late April or May. (By comparison, the great spring floral displays of West Australia are comprised of far fewer species.) Although the spring rains can be very sporadic, most years they are sufficient to bring forth good to incredible floral displays, which may be apparent along the main north-south highway commencing around Vanrhysndorp and continuing north almost to the border with Namibia. However, the greatest discoveries are invariably made by persons who go slowly, wander along unpaved secondary routes and farm roads, then get out of their vehicles and walk in search of plant specimens in the highly varied, often rocky landscape.

Freeman first travelled to Namaqualand in 1980 and returned in 2018 for his 40th extended visit. For 25 years, beginning in 1982 he conducted four annual wild-flower workshops at the Kamieskroon Hotel in the little village of the same name. During this period he amassed what is unquestionably the world’s largest collection of photographs of Namaqualand in bloom, although the University of Stellenbosch has the largest picture collection of individual species. Also, through his educational efforts in conservation and preservation, he helped to initiate land purchases that eventually led to the creation of Namaqualand National Park, which begins across the road from the Kamieskroon Hotel and now extends 70km to the coast and outward from there to include 100km. of the ocean floor.

Beginning in 2007 and continuing to the present, Freeman has led a two-week wilderness camping tour in March (autumn), the first week from a base camp on the Atlantic coast in Namaqualand National Park, the second week in the Richtersveld National Park, the spectacular mountain desert in the far north of Namaqualand along the Orange River, the border with Namibia. Some years this trip also provides the opportunity to see and photograph varieties of March lilies, a few striking species that bloom in autumn, but send forth leaves only after the spring rains.

Namaqualand, the small village of Kamieskroon, and the little Kamieskroon Hotel have become Freeman’s second home. In this program he invites you to visit him there.
