Chevalier

  • Carbon Arc Cinema

Greece / 2015 / 99 minutes

This "buddy movie without the buddies", directed and co-written by Athina Rachel Tsangari, takes place on a luxury yacht adrift in the Aegean Sea. Six men on a fishing trip decide to compete to see who is the best man, with the winner getting to wear the "Chevalier" victory ring. Before long, their game becomes an absurdist send-up of the things that divide them, yet unite them the most: male ego and insecurity.

Chevalier will screen twice, at 7pm and 9:15pm

Newcomer Royalty Hightower stars as Toni, a young boxer who joins a dance troupe, in this fresh and unique coming-of-age drama from writer/director Anna Rose Holmer. When the other dancers begin having mysterious seizures and turning them into routines, Toni must decide if she is willing to give up the control she craves in order to fit it. Spirituality, self-discovery, and a dreamlike sense of realism are blended in the rhythms of the dance performances and in the editing. Both Hightower and Holmer have garnered critical acclaim on the festival circuit for the confidence and assured nature of their contributions to the film.

The Fits will screen twice, at 7pm and 9pm

Nocturne 2016: Standby For Tape Backup

  • Carbon Arc Cinema

UK / 2015 / 65 minutes

Director Ross Sutherland combines found-footage from a videotape that once belonged to his granddad with a series of stories from his life. The videotape used has a lot of sentimental significance to Ross: it’s his main way of maintaining a connection to his granddad posthumously and he has used the tape as a form of meditation to combat depression. This film, originally created as a performance art piece, uses repetition to help locate hidden meaning inside the video, transforming innocuous pieces of TV into buried pieces of Sutherland's psyche.

Free screenings at 6pm, 7:15pm, 8:30pm, 9:45pm, and 11pm as part of Nocturne: Art at Night.

  • Carbon Arc

Italy / 2016 / 114 minutes

Presented in partnership with the Italian Canadian Cultural Association.

The Italian island of Lampedusa is the setting of this documentary, which won the Golden Bear at Berlinale — the first time a documentary has ever won the top award. As a common point of entry into Europe for hundreds of refugees from Africa and the Middle East, Lampedusa provides a stunning cultural crossroads for director Gianfranco Rosi to explore humanity and everyday life in naturalistic, poignant ways. Samuele, a 12-year-old boy who lives on the island, serves as the focal point as the film dives into the history of residents and refugees alike. Two different worlds are brought together by a global crisis, a timely topic that Rosi delicately handles to heartbreaking effect.

Guatemala / 2015 / 93 minutes

A coffee plantation at the base of a volcano is the setting for the visually impressive and beautiful story of María, a 17 year old Mayan girl who is arranged to be married... but not to the man she desires. When she plans to escape to the United States, the consequences challenge her, her family, and her village. As the first film ever made in the indigenous Mayan language of Kaqchikel, this stunning and realistic portrait of a disappearing and oft-dismissed culture is as important as it is engaging.

Further Beyond w/ director Christine Molloy

  • Carbon Arc Cinema

Ireland / 2016 / 89 minutes

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.
