NEIL SQUARED: A Tribute to Neil Young and Neil Diamond
May 31 @ 7:30 pm

Neil Squared is a stunning 80 minute tribute to both Neil Young and Neil Diamond by award winning singer/songwriter Kenny Byrka.

Largely influenced by the sounds of the 70’s, award winning singer/songwriter Kenny Byrka has taken the works from two of his favourite artists who began their magnanimous careers during this era and developed a stunning 80 minute tribute to both Neil Young and Neil Diamond. The contrast between the two from a vocal and writing perspective is obvious, yet Kenny emulates both with precision, character and creative parameters, fuelled by his multi-instrumental abilities and diverse vocal range. Neil Squared is a collection of the classic songs from each artist, assembled for your enjoyment and to celebration the richness of words and music from two musical legends.

The Neil Squared concert series is in support of mental health initiatives. All Atlantic shows will donate a portion of proceeds to the No Time for That Anti-Bullying Society.  www.NTFT.ca

ANTHROPOCENE: The Human Epoch
Jun 4 @ 7:30 pm

 

Anthropocene: The Human Epoch

 

A cinematic meditation on humanity’s massive reengineering of the planet, ANTHROPOCENE: The Human Epoch is a four years in the making feature documentary film from the multiple-award winning team of Jennifer Baichwal, Nicholas de Pencier and Edward Burtynsky. Third in a trilogy that includes Manufactured Landscapes (2006) and Watermark (2013), the film follows the research of an international body of scientists, the Anthropocene Working Group who, after nearly 10 years of research, are arguing that the Holocene Epoch gave way to the Anthropocene Epoch in the mid-twentieth century, because of profound and lasting human changes to the Earth. The filmmakers have traversed the globe using high end production values and state of the art camera techniques to document evidence and experience of human planetary domination. At the intersection of art and science, ANTHROPOCENE: The Human Epoch witnesses in an experiential and non-didactic sense a critical moment in geological history — bringing a provocative and unforgettable experience of our species’ breadth and impact.

 

“To say that there are no easy answers to planetary woes is to state the obvious. But the film seeks to reveal rather than lecture, in the hope that our eyes will convince our brains to act before it’s too late.”

—Peter Howell, Toronto Star

THE GRIZZLIES
Jun 28 @ 7:30 pm

Inuit youth in a small community gain a powerful sense of pride and purpose through the sport of lacrosse, in this true-story account of tenacity, renewal, and inspiring resilience.

Based on a true story, The Grizzlies is about the determination and resilience of a group of Inuit youth in a small Arctic community. In 1998, first-time teacher Russ Sheppard (Ben Schnetzer) moves north for a job at a local school in Kugluktuk, a town struggling with one of the highest suicide rates in North America. With no previous experience or knowledge of life in the north, Russ is shocked and overwhelmed by the numerous social issues facing the youth, all as a result of the massive legacy of colonization on their families and communities. Russ introduces a lacrosse program in the school. Although the program is at first met with skepticism and resistance, Russ’s commitment begins to win the trust of the students and together they form the Grizzlies lacrosse team. Through the sport, the youth find a vital outlet for their emotions and the team creates a sense of pride and purpose in themselves and their community.

Originally from Kugluktuk, one of the film’s producers, Stacey Aglok MacDonald, has first-hand experience of the impact of this program on her community and has been committed to bringing this story to the screen in close creative collaboration with producer Alethea Arnaquq-Baril and director Miranda de Pencier. With absolutely stunning breakout performances by young Nunavut-based actors Paul Nutarariaq and Emerald MacDonald, The Grizzlies is a testament to the spirit, tenacity, and leadership of Inuit youth, persisting in spite of immense pressure and hardship.

“Inspirational sports stories are nothing new, but a fresh milieu and a vivid cast of characters can revitalize any genre, and The Grizzlies — an excellent Canadian film directed by Miranda de Pencier — stands out as a stirring and compelling variation on a popular theme.”

– The Hollywood Reporter

AMAZING GRACE
Jul 9 @ 7:30 pm

AMAZING GRACE is a filmed record of the two nights, in January 1972, during which Aretha Franklin recorded the gospel performances that became the celebrated live double album “Amazing Grace.” It remains not only the best-selling gospel record of all time, but the best-selling album of Franklin’s 50-year career. She was then at the height of her stardom, with 20 albums and 11 number-one singles (“Respect,” “Chain of Fools,” “Think,” etc.) under her belt, and she wanted to do a record that honoured the formative gospel roots of her youth.

Warner Bros. hired director Sydney Pollack to film the sessions, and we see Pollack wandering around the church, directing the action and at one point holding the camera. But for technical reasons, the project wound up getting shelved. Now lovingly restored and assembled, AMAZING GRACE can stand as an essential filmed record of what is undoubtedly one of the greatest gospel performances. Franklin was not just a great singer, as one reviewer noted, she was a human chariot.

With: Aretha Franklin, the Reverend James Cleveland, C.F. Franklin, the Southern California Community Choir plus cameos of Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts

AMAZING GRACE  is two days of Baptist church condensed to 90 minutes and injected directly into your soul. – rogerebert.com
