Kedi

dir. Ceyda Torun / Turkey / 2016 / 80 minutes

Hundreds of thousands of Turkish cats roam the metropolis of Istanbul freely. For thousands of years they’ve wandered in and out of people’s lives, becoming an essential part of the communities that make the city so rich. Claiming no owners, the cats of Istanbul live between two worlds, neither wild nor tame — and they bring joy and purpose to those people they choose to adopt. In Kedi, as in Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to the people, allowing them to reflect on their lives in ways nothing else could.

dir. Juho Kuosmanen / Finland, Sweden, Germany / 2016 / 92 minutes

The true story of Olli Mäki, the famous Finnish boxer who had a shot at the 1962 World Featherweight title. Immensely talented and equally modest, Olli's small town life is transformed when he is swept into national stardom and suddenly regarded as a symbol of his country. There's only one problem: Olli has just fallen in love. Inside of the ring, it's Finland vs. the USA, but outside, boxing and romance become unlikely adversaries vying for Olli's attention.

Citizen Jane: Battle for the City

dir. Matt Tyrnauer / USA / 2016 / 92 minutes

A film about cities through the lens of Jane Jacobs, author of the 1961 book, The Death and Life of Great American Cities.

In 1960 Jane Jacobs’s book The Death and Life of Great American Cities sent shockwaves through the architecture and planning worlds, with its exploration of the consequences of modern planners’ and architects’ reconfiguration of cities. Jacobs was also an activist, who was involved in many fights in mid-century New York, to stop “master builder” Robert Moses from running roughshod over the city. This film retraces the battles for the city as personified by Jacobs and Moses, as urbanization moves to the very front of the global agenda. Many of the clues for formulating solutions to the dizzying array of urban issues can be found in Jacobs’s prescient text, and a close second look at her thinking and writing about cities is very much in order. This film sets out to examine the city of today though the lens of one of its greatest champions.

David Lynch: The Art Life

dirs. Jon Nguyen, Olivia Neergaard-Holm, and Rick Barnes / USA / 2017 / 90m

David Lynch: The Art Life looks at Lynch’s art, music, and early films, shining a light into the dark corners of his unique world and giving audiences a better understanding of the man and the artist. As he says, “I think every time you do something, like a painting or whatever, you go with ideas, and sometimes the past can conjure those ideas and color them. Even if they’re new ideas, the past colors them.”

We’re invited in and given private views from Lynch’s compound and painting studio in the hills high above Hollywood, as he tells personal stories that unfold like scenes from his films. Strange characters come into focus only to fade again into the past, all leaving an indelible mark.

A Matter Of Time

 

dir. Casey Cohen / Canada / 2016 / 85 minutes

Carbon Arc Cinema and CKDU present "A Matter Of Time" - the story of Kathryn Calder (of The New Pornographers) and her mother's battle with ALS.

In 2007, musician Kathryn Calder (of The New Pornographers) is touring the world with one of Canada’s biggest indie rock bands when her family receives devastating news: her mother, Lynn, has two to three years left to live. She has ALS. Consequently, Kathryn decides to return to her childhood home and commit to being her mom’s primary caregiver through the final months of her life.

The foundation of Lynn and Kathryn’s bond goes beyond mother and daughter, they share a love of music. Lynn, a former piano teacher, has always dreamed of seeing her daughter in the spotlight, singing her own songs. Inspired to make something beautiful amidst the grief and trauma of this long, painful goodbye, Kathryn transforms the living room of their house into a studio. With her mother in bed just down the hall and her condition worsening every day, Kathryn fills the house with music and makes a record, her first solo album, a parting gift for her biggest fan.

A Matter of Time is a heart-breaking yet hopeful documentary that examines the power of love and music, and the inspiration, salvation, and possibility that occurs when these two forces intersect.

Dreamcatcher

dir. Kim Longinotto / USA / 2015 / 104 minutes

For 25 years, Brenda Myers-Powell called herself “Breezy” and she dominated her world, or that’s what she thought. It was a world that had turned her into a teenage, drug-addicted prostitute. After a violent encounter with a “John”, Brenda woke up in the hospital and decided to change her life. Today she is a beacon of hope and a pillar of strength for hundreds of women and girls as young as fourteen who want to change their own lives. Dreamcatcher explores the cycle of neglect, violence and exploitation which each year leaves thousands upon thousands of girls and women feeling that prostitution is their only option to survive. By following the very charming, charismatic and truly empathic Brenda, we enter the lives of young women and see in verité footage their realities from their points of view. While the world may overlook these women and men, thankfully Brenda has not, providing an unflinching expose which contrasts seeming hopelessness against the difference that one person can make in the lives of many.

A boxing match in Brooklyn; life in postwar Bosnia and Herzegovina; the daily routine of a Nigerian midwife; an intimate family moment at home: these scenes and others are woven into Cameraperson, a tapestry of footage captured over the twenty-five-year career of documentary cinematographer Kirsten Johnson. Through a series of episodic juxtapositions, Johnson explores the relationships between image makers and their subjects, the tension between the objectivity and intervention of the camera, and the complex interaction of unfiltered reality and crafted narrative. A work that combines documentary, autobiography, and ethical inquiry, Cameraperson is both a moving glimpse into one filmmaker’s personal journey and a thoughtful examination of what it means to train a camera on the world.

Presented in partnership with Dalhousie University as part of the New Frontiers in Documentary masterclass and screening series.

On the surface, this documentary by filmmakers Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor (also known as the Desperate Optimists) is about a journey from Ireland to Chile in the late 1700s. The traveller is Ambrose O'Higgins, father of the first independent leader of Chile, Bernardo O'Higgins. In tracing his path across the Atlantic Ocean, Molloy and Lawler examine ideas of immigration, culture, and place, all while experimenting with the narrative documentary format. The result entwines the creative experience of filmmaking with the transformative experience of travel to see both in a new lens.

Christine Molloy will be present for a Q&A after the screening.

Elaine, a beautiful young witch, is determined to find a man to love her. In her gothic Victorian apartment she makes spells and potions, and then picks up men and seduces them. However her spells work too well, and she ends up with a string of hapless victims. When she finally meets the man of her dreams, her desperation to be loved will drive her to the brink of insanity and murder. With a visual style that pays tribute to Technicolor thrillers of the ‘60s, Anna Biller's iconic imagery and horror homages explore female fantasy and the repercussions of pathological narcissism.
