FIVE SEASONS: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf
Jun 18 @ 7:30 pm

Special Event Celebrating National Garden Week

Doors open at 6:30pm for wine & cheese; displays from local garden groups; door prizes!

 

“For me, garden design isn’t just about plants, it is about emotion, atmosphere, a sense of contemplation. You try to move people with what you do. You look at this, and it goes deeper than what you see. It reminds you of something in the genes — nature, or the longing for nature.”
– Piet Oudolf

Thanks to our partners from the Historic Gardens, Champlain Garden Club, Bunchberry Nursury, Thexton’s Greenhouses, Bainton’s Books, Nikian Enterprises, Beswick Flowers, Annapolis Home Hardware Garden Centre, and Joy Elliot Landscape & Architectural Design.

————————————————–

After completing a feature documentary on New York’s High Line, award-winning filmmaker Thomas Piper met the inspirational designer and plantsman, Piet Oudolf, and the idea for a new project was born. The documentary, FIVE SEASONS: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf, immerses viewers in Oudolf’s work and takes us inside his creative process, from his beautifully abstract sketches, to theories on beauty, to the ecological implications of his ideas.

Intimate discussions take place through all fours seasons in Piet’s own gardens at Hummelo, and on visits to his signature public works in New York, Chicago, and the Netherlands, as well as to the far-flung locations that inspire his genius, including desert wildflowers in West Texas and post-industrial forests in Pennsylvania.

As a narrative thread, the film also follows Oudolf as he designs and installs a major new garden at Hauser & Wirth Somerset, a gallery and arts center in Southwest England, a garden he considers his best work yet.

Piet Oudolf has radically redefined what gardens can be. As Rick Darke, the famous botanist, says to Piet in the film, “your work teaches us to see what what we have been unable to see.” Through poetic cinematography and unique access, FIVE SEASONS will reveal all that Piet sees, and celebrate all that we as viewers have been unable to see.

 

 

Special Film Event Tickets:

$14 Adult, $13 with Film Buff Card. All prices include HST.

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

APOLLO 11
Jul 19 @ 7:30 pm

COMMEMORATING THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE FIRST MOON-LANDING

Immersed in the perspectives of the astronauts, the team in Mission Control, and the millions of spectators on the ground, we vividly experience those momentous days and hours in 1969 when humankind took a giant leap into the future.


“Utterly astonishing. Takes your breath away.”

– IndieWire

“The documentary “Apollo 11,” directed and edited by Todd Douglas Miller, is entirely awe-inspiring.”

*Duncan Draper was trained as a jazz piano player at the Berklee College of Music in California. He was a consummate musician, equally comfortable playing jazz, samba, rock, traditional Irish and Scottish music, folk and bluegrass on a wide variety of instruments. He was always inspiring, supportive and encouraging towards musicians and was there to contribute his musical talents when asked and/or needed, whether it was a musical fundraiser, performance or a session. He is greatly missed in Annapolis Royal and beyond.

LATE NIGHT
Aug 6 @ 7:30 pm

YOURE THE BOSS: AUDIENCE CHOICE

LATE NIGHT

Directed by Nisha Ganatra
Starring EmmaThompson, Mindy Kaling, Amy Ryan, John Lithgow

 

After almost 30 years, a groundbreaking talk-show host suspects she may soon be losing her coveted seat on late-night television unless she manages a game-changing transformation. Legendary talk-show host Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) is a pioneer in her field. The only woman ever to have a long-running program on late night, she keeps her writers’ room on a short leash – and all male. But when her ratings plummet and she is accused of being a “woman who hates women,” Katherine puts gender equality on her to-do list and impulsively hires Molly Patel (Mindy Kaling), a chemical plant efficiency expert from suburban Pennsylvania, as the first and only female on her writing staff. 

With rumors swirling that Katherine is being replaced by a younger, hipper male host, she demands that the writers make her funny and relevant again. A lifelong fan, Molly is determined to prove she’s not just a diversity hire, but the one person who can turn her idol’s career around. Going against everything Katherine has staked her reputation on, she urges her to make the show more contemporary, authentic and personal, a move that could make Molly’s career or send her back to the chemical plant for good.

“Watching Emma Thompson and Mindy Kaling mix it up in Late Night will make you think you’ve died and gone to hilarity heaven.”

– Rolling Stone
