MAP program screenings

Roobha

 WEDNESDAY OCT 10   I   6:30PM   I   FAMOUS PLAYERS CANADA SQUARE CINEMA 

She’s enchanting… and then she dances… A runaway train of intensity. A raw multi-layered look into feelings that many don’t understand. A relationship develops between an older Sri Lankan man and a young woman. He’s… married, with children, and she’s… a trans-woman. Yes, it’s complicated, but it’s also a beautifully thoughtful portrayal of what we all want… to love and be loved.

When The Storm Fades

 THURSDAY OCT 10   I   7:30PM   I   FAMOUS PLAYERS CANADA SQUARES CINEMA

Haiyan was sheer destruction. In 2013, Mother Nature unleashed the most powerful typhoon in history on the Philippines. Actual surviving relatives try to put their lives back together. The filmmaker’s treatment of their grief is poetic, but his real skill lies in casting two foreign aid workers (played by comedy award winning actors) who fumble hysterically as white saviours, turning the film into a biting docu-dramedy.

Drowning in Sands

 FRIDAY OCT 12   I   7:00PM   I   FAMOUS PLAYERS CANADA SQUARE CINEMA 

It drops you right in, into the crisis, and into the sand. The cinematography is stunning. In Sudan, sand is the ultimate destroyer, leaving behind a wasteland after a storm. Nothing can grow and no-one can live. Two Sudanese engineers develop drones for farming which is under threat of desertification. These are men of invention, persevering past terrorist sanctions, and executing agricultural robotics.

19-S The Earth Shouts

 FRIDAY OCT 12   I   7:00PM   I   FAMOUS PLAYERS CANADA SQUARE CINEMA 

September 2017, two earthquakes in 12 days rocked Mexico. One was the strongest in nearly 100 years. A fast-paced documentary with an incredible assemblage of news and private video footage depicting affected cities. Interweaving historical seismic data through digital imagery provides context about Mexico’s vulnerability to earthquakes. It sits on several of the earth’s plates. Highly educational and visually creative.

3 Seconds Divorce

 SATURDAY OCT 13   I   11:00AM   I   FAMOUS PLAYERS CANADA SQUARE CINEMA 

Divorce! Uttered three times and it’s legal and final under Sharia Law. This is where Lubna finds herself, kicked out of the house with her infant son. Muslims do not have a codified Family Law in India. Shot verite style, we follow Lubna’s journey from disenfranchised to social activist. Inspiring and historic, sisterhood at it’s finest. Gender justice isn’t just for the West. It’s happening everywhere.

SATURDAY OCTOBER 13TH | 2PM | FAMOUS PLAYERS CANADA SQUARE

The Color of Medicine

 SATURDAY OCT 13   I   5:00PM   I   FAMOUS PLAYERS CANADA SQUARES CINEMA

It was an all black hospital. Developed at a time of intense segregation, for some it became the only option to study medicine and nursing. More than a facility, Homer G. Phillips Hospital was an institution that galvanized an African American community. Poignant and insightful film about a founding Hospital, which tracks the black migration story, commemorating generations of medical professional pioneers that helped establish the American black middle class in St. Louis.

Un Printemps D'ailleurs (A Touch of Spring)

 SATURDAY OCT 13   I   8:00PM   I   FAMOUS PLAYERS CANADA SQUARE CINEMA 

A dramatic fight. A traumatic realization: she can’t get pregnant. The couple separates. As a Chinese Quebecois she goes back to China, and tries to reconnect, “I am from here…” but confronts issues of displacement, cultural tradition, and family secrets. Still clinging to her old relationship, while dodging questions of being without child. After a while the pretence is too much. This is a portrait of Chinese life in all its contemporary glory and existential complexity, with some skillful performances providing a comic touch.

Ce Silence Qui Tue (Quiet Killing)

 SUNDAY OCT 14   I   12:00PM   I   FAMOUS PLAYERS CANADA SQUARE CINEMA 

Unrelenting and absolutely necessary. The kind of film that stays with you. First hand accounts of women who endured trauma highlight the perpetrator comes in many different forms. As courageous as they have been to tell us their stories, I dare not call them victims, they are survivors. We owe it to them to listen. Missing Indigenous women should never be ignored.

Letter from Masanjia

 SUNDAY OCT 14   I   3:00PM   I   FAMOUS PLAYERS CANADA SQUARE CINEMA 

“It was like a Message in a Bottle”.  A Chinese national in a labour camp hides a cry for help in a Halloween decoration. His SOS makes it all the way to middle America changing the lives of an Oregon family forever. A powerfully suspenseful film revealing the true cost of whistleblowing as the Chinese national attempts to gather concrete covert evidence of oppressive labour conditions from within the camp.  A documentary about individual determination that rivals any dramatic narrative feature. A must-watch. It will make you rethink where you buy your products and how they were made.

Closing Ceremony | Circle of Steel

 SUNDAY OCT 14   I   6:00PM   I   FAMOUS PLAYERS CANADA SQUARE CINEMA 

“You never find what you’re lookin’ for, while you’re lookin.” A well made satirical slice of life, about Alberta’s oil fields. As the employees of an oil company grapple with the possibility of layoffs, we see how each of them handle the pressure, not so gracefully, leading to comedic results. A witty reflective multi-character study, in which everyone is just being themselves.
