Eagerly awaiting your Arrival this week at The Civic.
Denis Villeneuve has certainly “arrived” as a major film talent. With Prisoners, Enemy and Sicario, (all screened at The Civic) under his belt, the French Canadian director is back with the 93% Certified Fresh, Arrival (PG), starring Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner. Linguistics finally gets its dues. When mysterious spacecraft touch down across the globe, expert linguist Louise Banks could be the person to pull humanity back from the brink this weekend and Tuesday.
And if there was any doubt that humanity should be saved, look at the amazing works art they can produce. Just look at what choreographer Alexander Ekman has produced. His new full-length ballet A Swan Lake, nominated for a 2015 Benois de la Danse, takes a fresh look at Tchaikovsky’s classic work. On a stage surfaced completely in a pool of water, we see The Norwegian National Ballet, dressed in costumes by Danish fashion designer Henrik Vibskov. A true dance spectacle not to be missed on Sunday afternoon or Monday evening.
On Wednesday, Teton Gravity Research is in town premiering their latest ski/snowboard ballet, Tight Loose. Filmed around the world, including locally at Whitewater Ski Resort, Tight Loose is TGR’s highest achievement to date. From India to Alaska, come join TGR as we discover unridden spine walls, massive airs, and full throttle riding in some of the wildest and most spectacular places on earth.
Closing off the week, The Pura Vida Foundation premieres a small documentary on the struggles and success that The Pura Vida Foundation has had by working with exploited and abused young girls of Peru. Also premiering are two more short documentaries that are also filmed and directed by award winning film maker Jeremy Grant. And to conclude the evening, one of the girls from The Pura Vida Shelter in Peru, will take the stage to talk about her first hand experiences. This night will be a chance to see hope and real change, through a young women who has struggled and fought to have the life that her and every child deserves.
