Emotions run wild.
From Pixar’s latest to a unique discourse on religion, from photographic explorations of the human condition to new love in later life, emotions will carry you away this week at The Civic.
Kootenay’s own renowned hip hop artist Baba Brinkman brings his acclaimed New York off-broadway show, Rap Guide to Religion to his home town for a one-night only performance Monday, July 13 at 7:00pm. Emotions can run hot, when evolution confronts faith? Can science and religion be brought into alignment? And why are both God and Darwin so obsessed with baby making? Nominated for a 2015 Drama Desk Award during its extended off-Broadway run in New York, Rap Guide to Religion is part rap concert, part comedy, and part TED Talk, exploring the science of the sacred with wit and irreverence.
For our main feature, Pixar’s Inside Out (rated G) goes to the source where we really see how emotions rule us. Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life.
Sebastião Salgado’s camera has been witness and been catalyst to high emotional response to some of the major events of our recent history; international conflicts, starvation and exodus. He is now embarking on the discovery of pristine territories, of wild fauna and flora, and of grandiose landscapes as part of a huge photographic project which is a tribute to the planet’s beauty. Wim Wender’s documentary Salt of the Earth (rated PG) plays on Wednesday, July 15 at 7:30pm.
There is no stronger emotion than love and when it hits unexpectedly as a widow, it is like a whole new beginning to life, especially when it is with a silver fox like Sam Elliot. With the support of three loyal girlfriends (June Squibb, Rhea Perlman, and Mary Kay Place), Carol (Blythe Danner) decides to embrace the world, embarking on an unlikely friendship with her pool maintenance man (Martin Starr), pursuing a new love interest (Sam Elliott), and reconnecting with her daughter (Malin Akerman). I’ll See You In My Dreams (rated PG) plays Thursday, July 16 at 7:30.
