REEL CANADA coming to Yarmouth! April 29,2015
The Western Branch of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia is excited about being part of National Canadian Film Day (NCFD), an initiative of REEL CANADA which will be celebrated coast-to-coast on Wednesday, April 29. This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Gallery and is a day for all Canadians to celebrate Canada by watching a great Canadian films.
Sharon Corder, Artistic Director for REEL CANADA says, “The fact is, Canadians love Canadian movies when they actually get a chance to see them. So when we give them that opportunity, it really is a party.”
The line up for shows at the AGNS in Yarmouth is spectacular:
1 pm Barney's Version (aimed for Seniors). Tea/cookies
Toward the end of his life, Barney Panofsky (Paul Giamatti) looks back on his triumphs and tragedies, beginning with an ill-fated relationship with Clara (Rachelle Lefevre), whom he marries when she becomes pregnant. When that falls apart, he moves back home to Montreal and gets married twice more, finally finding contentment with Miriam (Rosamund Pike), his third wife. Through it all, Barney is sustained by his work in television, raising children and the advice of his father (Dustin Hoffman).
4 pm The Whale (aimed for kids but adults also love this movie) granola bar/juice
THE WHALE tells the true story of a young, wild killer whale - an orca - nicknamed Luna, who lost contact with his family on the coast of British Columbia and turned up alone in a narrow stretch of sea between mountains, a place called Nootka Sound. Luna was alone, but he didn’t fade away. There weren’t any familiar orcas in Nootka Sound, but there were people, in boats and on the shore. So he started trying to make contact. And people welcomed him. Most of them. This contact did not turn out to be simple. It was as if we humans weren’t ready for him. This story is about what happened next.
7 pm The Iron Road (general public) pizza/popA poor but feisty Chinese woman, disguised as a boy, joins the railroad crew in the Rocky Mountains to search for her long-lost father, and falls in love with the son of the railroad tycoon. Peter O’Toole, Luke MacFarlane, Charlotte Sutherland
All the movies are free; children must be accompanied by an adult for The Whale. Refreshments will be served at each showing for a Toonie. To make sure you have a seat, call the AGNS (902 749-2248) and reserve your seat! The movies are free!
